The partition of the Indian subcontinent was a wound inflicted upon the living body of one of the oldest civilisations on earth. A civilisation that was rich in art, architecture, music, literature and other forms of human culture... its cultural diversity was its greatest beauty. The pain still remains and has left an indelible scar upon millions of people.

Revolutionary periods are historical exceptions and the period around the years 1968-69 comes under this category. This book is about the revolution in Pakistan. But before entering into the tumultuous events tha swept across Pakistan, Lal Khan puts them into the context of worldwide wave of revolution in the period starting in 1968.

A new book by Lal Khan is being published to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 1968 Pakistan revolution. Here we publish Alan Woods' Introduction in which he highlights the main processes of the tumultuous 1968 events and explains how a new 1968 is being prepared in Pakistan in the coming period.
