    “WELL-WRITTEN AND ENTERTAINING”

    MICHAEL JABRI-PICKETT FORMER FOREIGN EDITOR AT THE NATIONAL

    “Fall Out” delves into the tumultuous journey of Imran Khan’s transition from a tenacious opposition leader to the prime minister from 2014 to 2018, and his complicated relationship with the Pakistani military since then. It charts the fall of Nawaz Sharif, influenced by the Panama Papers scandal, and the role of former army chief, General Qamar Javed Bajwa, in the Hybrid Project/Rule, revealing the changes he went through while in power. The book underscores the persistent unpredictability in leadership decisions, both military and civilian, that leads to a constant state of crisis in Pakistan, underlining the crucial need for institutional stability. A familiar yet ever-changing tableau of power, “Fall Out” is an incisive exploration of Pakistani politics.

    “Salman has been one of the keenest observers of Pakistan and South Asia for more than two decades. This book distills the tumultuous events of the past decade into one sharp focus.”
