From Amazon:This study explores the dynamics and deadlocks in the pre-partition politics of the Punjab. Its unique strength is its biographical focus, which provides an authentic understanding of the realities of class, caste, religion, and politics. From Google Books: First biography of Khizr Tiwana, the Unionist Premier of the Punjab during the climacteric period 1942-47. The Punjab formed the heartland of a future Pakistan, hence the subcontinent's destiny rested on the clash between Khizr and Jinnah over the region's unity vs Muslim separatism
