"Readers will rejoice in meeting two brilliant minds in this monumental work: Chief Justice A.R.

"Chief Justice Cornelius of Pakistan is an important contribution to Pakistan Studies, Islamics, and comparative politics....The book is elegantly written and thoroughly engaging. The author...draws on his extensive experience in Pakistan to produce a very useful book."--Charles H. Kennedy, Wake Forest University


"This collection of letters and speeches of Justice Cornelius and the accompanying commentary of Ralph Braibanti are a gift to the Pakistan nation and of major importance to the historical record."--Lawrence Ziring, Western Michigan University
