The Emergence of Bangladesh: Class Struggles in East Pakistan, 1947-1958, Volume 1
This volume examines the events which led to the political liquidation of the Muslim League in the 1954 provincial elections in East Pakistan and the subsequent undermining of the results of this victory through interventions from the Central Government. The work provides some insights into the struggle over the framing of the constitution of Pakistan. It traces the gradual subversion of the democratic process through conspiracy from above and compromises and collusion from within the political process culminating in the declaration of Martial Law in 1958. The book is likely to be instructive for students, scholars and general researchers and will provoke political debate in both Pakistan and Bangladesh."--BOOK JACKET.
