|This book published by Harvard University Press in the USA almost 60 years ago, comprises speeches made by Liaquat Ali Khan, the first Prime Minister of Pakistan, during his maiden visit to the USA and Canada in 1950. Reading or re-reading theses speeches now, after almost six decades since they were first made, provide hindsight for a fresher and more accurate appraisal of Liaquat as the Prime Minister, and the path that he wanted his very young nation (only 2 years old at the time) to tread on.|
|Introduction, added to this re-published edition, by Dr. Samiullah Koreshi, the former Pakistan Ambassador and a highly respected career diplomat, presents to both the critics and admirers of Liaquat a long overdue insight into some historical facts and fallacies associated with one of the Founding Fathers of Pakistan.|
