Setting the development of the Muslim League in a historical and cultural setting, this book discusses the transformation of the league's position in the Pakistan region during the closing decade of British rule. Focusing particularly on the way in which the League put its message across through the idiom of rural Islam, Talbot provides a political analysis of and election data from the Sind, Bengal, Punjab, and Northwest Frontier Province regions; analyzes Jinnah's relationship with the provincial political elites; and discusses the League's organizational development in the Muslim province.
