*** This is a new, never read book. It has a few blemishes such as a crease or edge-wear on the cover, but it is still crisp and new on the inside and it makes for a great reading copy. *** This book is a comprehensive analysis of the causes of the break-up of Pakistan. The core of the analysis is that the break-up did much more than just liberate Bangladesh. It liberated India which, ever since her first liberation in 1947, had been caught in the coils of a global diplomacy which probably had the aim and certainly the effect of denying India her rightful place in the world.
