Abstract:

Standard historical accounts of the emergence of Pakistan have been dominated by events and issues at the elite level of politics. This book introduces two new angles to the subject. It lays particular emphasis firstly on the role of popular participation in the freedom struggle and secondly on the human dimension of the Partition experience. In order to open up these fresh perspectives this study utilizes new sources, including the extended use of fictitional representation. In addition to the injection of a human perspective into the historical discourse on Pakistan's emergence, the author provides comprehensive data on refugee resettlement and bibliographical notes.
