Summary
"Benazir Bhutto has been the main protagonist on Pakistan's political stage ever since the execution of her father, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. Her advent marked the transition to democracy but her performance has been controversial. This book tries to strike a balance between the unrelenting criticism of her political adversaries, the adulation of her followers, and the disappointed hopes of her well-wishers." "Iqbal Akhund, who was Adviser on National Security and Foreign Affairs in Benazir Bhutto's first cabinet (November 1988-August 1990), describes the challenges and opportunities that faced the Benazir government during the twenty-month transition from a waning dictatorship to an incipient democracy, and examines with objectivity and inside knowledge, its successes and failures."--BOOK JACKET
