Separatism in East Pakistan

A Study of Failed Leadership

Rizwan Ullah Kokab

  • This book provides an academic perspective on the Bengali nationalist movement, the seeds of which were sown in the 1940s
  • Being an original work by the author, the book aims to record the growth of the Bengali nationalist movement and shortcomings of Pakistani leaders in accommodating it
  • This scholarly empirical appraisal is a vital addition to the available literature on post-Partition history of the events leading from 1947 up to the breaking up of Pakistan and the creation of Bangladesh in 1971
