The book highlights the working of the parliament of Pakistan in the 1970s. The author examines the role of the parliament, how it functioned, and evolved over the 1971-7 period. He focuses on concepts such as autonomy, complexity, differentiation, durability, and sovereignty, providing insight on the functioning of political regimes and parliaments in postcolonial states. The book lists the strengths and weaknesses of the parliament and initiates a compelling discussion to establish a correlation between its functioning and the emergence of undemocratic practices in Pakistan.
