About the Book

The central focus of this edition is to look into what actually happened in the political system in South Asia during its first decade of 20th century which led to the rise of dictatorship and ultimate collapse of democracy in this region. Here national integration has been linked with good governance. Nation building has been examined as a separate and distinct problem. This edition provides the tentative answers to the current existing problems of Pakistan. The historicity analyses why today Pakistan has virtually emerged as a failed state. This edition also helps to understand the nation building process and problem in third world countries, especially those who came out of the process of decolonization after Second World War.
