This volume the third in the trilogy on the Pathway to India's Partition shows the key role played by Jinnah in the last phase of the journey to that goal. It also proves the hollowness of the so called revisionist thesis that although claiming to work for the creation of Pakistan Jinnah actually did not believe in that demand and was really working for a compromise which might succeed in bringing about a strong Central Government for a united India and that this had indeed been the real objective of the Pakistan Resolution of 1940 an absurd proposition. The contents of this volume also reveal the absurdity of the view propounded by the revisionists and others that if in spite of Jinnah's efforts to the contrary India had to be divided and Pakistan created this was due to the mistakes of the Congress leaders. Finally the volume illustrates the acute agony experienced by Gandhi who looked upon the prospect of partition with extreme pain and abhorrence and still felt compelled to go along with the proposal for partition as accepted by the Congress Working Committee and asked the members of the All India Congress Committee to do the same on the ground that in the communally surcharged atmosphere in India in 1947 there was really no other alternative.
