This book undertakes a comprehensive study of judicial history in Pakistan since Independence. It includes detailed discussion of the acts, lives and judgments of important Pakistani judges, with their continuing effects on the life of the nation. Lawyers, judges and law professors and students of law, political science and history will find this book of particular value, as will the general reader."@en ;
