In the decade immediately after independence, Pakistan went from democracy to military government. This book recounts how the change began--not by the military, as is commonly believed--but by the nation's chief executive, whose actions received the approval of the judiciary. The political events of this dramatic decade are presented in vivid detail.

About the Author:

Allen McGrath is a managing partner of the international law firm, Graham and Jones.

Review:

`He must be commended for his painstaking efforts in recapitulating the events which in 1954 led to the stand-off between the legislature and the executive ... McGrath sheds much useful light on the part played by religious parties in the controversies surrounding the drafting of Pakistan's
first constitution.'
Ayesha Jalal, Harvard University, The Journal of Asian Studies

`scholarly work'
