This work describes and governance in Pakistan over three separate historical periods:
(i) the good governance during the British period; (ii) still better governance by an idealistically devoted bureaucracy in the first decade of Pakistan’s independence, resulting in great progress by Pakistan; and (iii) deliberate destruction of good governance and soundd bureaucracy by conscious designs by the various governments since 1958. The author has been an eye-witness of all the three stages.
