The North West Frontier Drama 1945-1947, A Re-Assessment


This is a re-assessment of the political developments in a region which was strongly opposed to the Muslim League and the Pakistan Movement in the years preceeding Partition. The years 1945 to 1947 were particularly eventful and ended in the overthrow of the elements opposed to the League. The hectic manipulation of various elements and the violent mood of the people of the region have both been brought out in this study, whilst the conduct of the British civil servants who played a key role in the developments has also been researched.
