Synopsis

Dr. K. Sohail's newest book opens the issue of war and peace occupying a central place on the global stage. The leaders he presents have not only shaped the history of their own countries and communities, but have transcended local boundaries to influence the course of the 20th century. In this new millennium, their political thoughts, strategies and general philosophy must be studied as they will continue to influence our decisions. The strength of this book is that it features Martin Luther King for those interested in the civil rights movement in America; Nelson Mandela for those seeking news of South Africa, Che Guevara and Ho Chi Minh for the leftist movements, and the history of tiny Tibet through the personality of the Dalai Lama. Kamel Ataturk for Turkey, Frantz Fanon for France and Algeria, Leon Tolstoy for Russia and internationally Mahatma Gandhi and lesser known in western circles. Rabindranath Tagore, Mohammad Iqbal and Mohammad Ali Jinnah, explore the Indian subcontinent. Dr. Sohailhas built a solid, easily-managed bridge for all to comprehend the thoughts and actions of leaders from around the world. Written in simple language, it enables every layman to access a 20th century human treasure of information. Dr. Sohail's insights as a psychotherapist enable him to present these history-makers not as mere distant political figures but as human beings with all of their strengths and weaknesses.
