Review Quotes
"Sikandar Hayat's The Charismatic Leader: Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah and the Creation of Pakistan is a major breakthrough in the historiography of the Pakistan movement. Hayat systematically and effectively applies Max Weber's concept of 'charismatic leadership' to the study of Jinnah's life, accomplishments and legacy. In doing so political science, sociology and historical narrative are blended into a coherent and persuasive whole... The Charismatic Leader is not only a much needed breath of fresh air but also a stimulating and solid treatment of Jinnah from which students, scholars, and interested readers can all benefit greatly."-- Southeast Asia Online

Long Description
Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah emerged as the charismatic leader of the Muslims in British India during the cataclysmic decade of 1937-47. The Muslims faced a distressful situation as India advanced towards freedom. Jinnah came to their rescue, showed them a way out of the difficulties in a separate homeland of Pakistan, and led them in their strenuous struggle for freedom and independence. This charismatic struggle is the subject of the book.
Main Description
This book provides a detailed and systematic analysis of the charismatic leadership of Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the leader of Indian Muslims during the crisis-ridden decade of 1937-47. Based on the concept of charisma formulated by Max Weber and developed by recent writers, the study concentrates on the 'personality-related' and 'situational' factors that led to the emergence of Jinnah as the charismatic leader of the Muslims and sustained him in that role until the creation of Pakistan. In explaining and explicating Jinnah's charisma, his early political career and the crises facing the Muslims of British India, both systemic and of leadership, have been examined at length. Although Jinnah has been acknowledged as a charismatic leader before, no previous study has defined and discussed the concept of charisma so methodically or employed it to analyze his leadership in such a systematic manner. In this sense, this book is the first exposition of Jinnah's charismatic leadership in scholarly literature.

Based on the concept of charisma formulated by Max Weber and developed by recent writers, the study concentrates on the 'personality-related' and 'situational' factors that led to the emergence of Jinnah as the charismatic leader of the Muslims and sustained him in that role until the creation of Pakistan. In explaining and explicating Jinnah's charisma, his early political career and the crises facing the Muslims of British India, both systemic and of leadership, have been examined at length. This has been followed by a critical appraisal of Jinnah's formula of Pakistan, his strategy for political mobilization of the Muslims under the banner of the All-India Muslim League, and his extraordinary skills and abilities in negotiating with the British and Congress leaders who were united in their opposition to Pakistan. Recognizing him as their charismatic leader, and moved by the Pakistan demand, the Muslim masses rallied behind him, with the result that at the creation of Pakistan in August 1947, his charisma was truly at its zenith.
