Khizr Tiwana: The Punjab Unionist Party and the Partition of India
This book explores the dynamics and deadlocks in the pre-partition politics of the Punjab. Its strength is its biographical focus, which provides an authentic understanding of the ground realities of class, caste, religion and politics. It reflects on the life of the Tiwanas, a landowning family of pre-partition Punjab and its influence and power in the first half of the twentieth century.
