The author highlights the role that the administration played after the second world war, and the manner in which it handled the demand for Pakistan and the subsequent partitioning of the province. This book will be of interest to historians of the Punjab and political scientists.
This study examines how following the Mutiny of 1857 Punjab became the main recruiting ground for the Indian army, and the politics and political economy of the colonial Punjab were militarized.
Young’s work…transcends narrow disciplinary divisions and speaks as much to national security studies and international politics as it does to military history.
"Tan Tai Yong has written a clear, solidly researched, new style account. Tan's well-crafted account brings many threads of the story together. The Garrison State should interest many: South Asia specialists in many disciplines; most students of colonialism and/or military history; and those general readers who wish to penetrate the headlines to understand better the roots of a postcolonial state such a Pakistan."
"The book is a valuable addition to not only the history of the Punjab, but also to wider literature on military and British imperial history. It will also be of immense value to political scientists and other scholars of contemporary Pakistan."
