From the publisher’s description:

Abul Kalam Azad (1888-1958)--President of the Indian National Congress from 1939 to 1946, outspoken opponent of Jinnah and Partition, symbol of the Muslim will to coexist in a secular India, and scholar and intellectual--was one of modern India's most important leaders. This first substantial biography of Azad in English charts his many contributions to the intellectual, political, and religious heritage of modern India, revealing important continuities in his life and thought.
