This book focuses on the politics of the North-West Frontier Province of India between 1937 and 1947. It was the only Muslim majority province which supported the Indian National Congress in its struggle against the British Raj. The book explores the rise of the Khudai Khidmatgars, the preference of the NWFP Muslims for the Congress, and the Muslim League's initial failure to acquire their support.
