Biography: general

?Brash, open, calculating and self-serving, Gen. Pervez Musharraf was probably the twenty-first century?s first dictator. Murtaza Razvi gives us a fascinating first cut of his history. He provides a balanced picture of the general?s achievements, contradictions and vulnerabilities.?-Manoj Joshi, author, Lost Rebellion: Kashmir in the 1990s Musharraf: The Years in Power charts the rise and fall of General Pervez Musharraf, Pakistan?s most controversial leader since Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. Musharraf?s life in the hot seat of Pakistan?s politics is a rollercoaster tale of a soldier-turned-politician, a commando, a self-styled statesman, a sophisticated globetrotter, the resolute face of the US-led global war on terror, and the feared, revered and finally disowned president of an Islamic republic, who is smitten with an ?enlightened moderation? that succumbs, in the end, to the many contradictions within the man himself. This no-holds-barred political biography by an astute political commentator and journalist provides perspective on the man whose politics have changed the face of the Indian subcontinent.
