Ayesha Jalal, the Mary Richardson Professor of History at Tufts University in Boston, is one of the most well known Pakistani-American scholars on South Asia.
Her books include ‘The Pity of Partition: Manto’s Life, Times, and Work Across the Indo-Pakistan Divide’; ‘Partisans of Allah: Jihad in South Asia’, ‘The Muslim League and the Demand for Pakistan’; ‘The State of Martial Rule: The Origins of Pakistan’s Political Economy of Defence’ and ‘Democracy and Authoritarianism in South Asia,’ amongst others.
