New edition 2002
by Suhail Zaheer Lari

‘A valuable addition to the few authentic books available on the subject in the English language’
Hasan Mujtaba, Newsline, March 1994

‘The political history is interspersed with accounts of the development of the Sindhi language and literature and the spread of Sufism. The book contains references to important articles, books and original sources. Short as the book may appear, it has succinctly given all important information, making it a handy, useful and connected history of Sindh from the earliest days. It will form an important guide for research workers and students of history and literature of Sindh.’
I. A. A., The Nation, 9 December 1994

‘Suhail Zaheer Lari has done a good job by unfolding details about Sindh which were not hitherto commonly known to people. It is indeed a very profound study.’
Col. (Retd) Ghulam Sarwar, Pakistan Times, 20 April 1995

‘A Reference Work’
Narayani Gupta, Department of History and Culture, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi, September 1995

‘As with all Heritage Foundation publications, the layout and presentation are superb.’
Umbereen Beg-Mirza, She, November 2002

‘But what is more remarkable is that he has brought to his narration of events a more balanced interpretive angle. This gives the story a heretical slant and makes it exciting to read. Lari has a historian’s natural bent as you can see in the linear record that his brief book tries to maintain. It is his penchant for neglected facts that adds excitement to what otherwise would have declined into ideological routine.’
Khaled Ahmed, Friday Times, Nov 29-Dec 5, 2002
