A History Of The Peoples of Pakistan Towards Independence By J Hussain – OXFORD
A History of the Peoples of Pakistan has previously appeared in three volumes as An Illustrated History of Pakistan. These volumes were originally prepared as textbooks, but have now been compiled for the general reader in this new hardbound edition.
This work recounts the history of the Pakistan area from the perspective of present day Pakistan. Many histories, including those written since independence, treat this area a minor appendage of either the Indian peninsula or the British Empire.
In A History of the Peoples of Pakistan, Part I positions the land of the Indus centrally, emphasizing its crucial and continuous role in developing civilizations which grew and spread in all directions. Part II presents the Pakistan area as an integral part of the Muslim world which transmitted the Islamic faith and Muslim culture to much of south-east Asia.
In Part III, this area is shown to have its own unique history during the period of colonial role. Similarly, Part IV recounts the struggle for Independence from the points of view of the future citizens of Pakistan.
A History of the Peoples of Pakistan
While Pakistan as a country is relatively young, the regions of which it is compromised were home to some of the oldest civilizations of the human race. It is a highly distinctive region, where the culture of the subcontinent has overlapped with that of the Middle East, Persia, and Central Asia. The history of this region cannot be regarded as a mere sub-theme of the history of Muslim Rulers in Delhi and Agra and of the British rulers in Calcutta, Delhi and Simla. This volume has attempted to correct the balance by recording the contributions of all groups, Muslim and Non-Muslim,from both East and West, of the area that compromises Pakistan. It is centered upon Pakistan’s own land and peoples, recounting the history of the Pakistan area from the perspective of present-day Pakistan.
J. HUSSAIN graduated from the University of Chicago, where she studied South Asia Civilizations and Psychology. In 1968, she settled in Rawalpindi where she taught at the International School of Islamabad and wrote Books I and II of An Illustrated History of Pakistan.
‘A History of the Peoples of Pakistan’ covers the history of this area – from pre-islamic times up to the creation of Pakistan – in a refreshing way. The approach will attract students who want something extra from their textbooks. This textbook is ideal for students working towards degree and competitive examinations, and covers major portions of the syllabi.
