 1,480

Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, brilliant orator, astute politician and statesman, autocrat and a man of the people, is remembered as much for his death by execution as for his extraordinary life.

The six years, from 1971 to 1977, that Bhutto led Pakistan from a defeated and demoralized country to a proud, dynamic and rehabilitated nation, are recorded and assessed by one of his closest associates, Dr. Mubashir Hasan.

In this book, Dr. Mubashir Hasan presents an insider?s account of the Bhutto years. As a member and Secretary General of the Pakistan People?s Party, and Minister of Finance in Bhutto?s Cabinet, the author was a close observer of the power struggle that raged within the inner sanctums of the party.

For the very first time, he reveals details of the tragic shift of state power from the leadership of the people to the traditional military-bureaucratic Establishment. He also writes about the factors that contributed to Bhutto?s fall from an adored leader of the people to an isolated, lonely, and defeated man, executed by his own chosen military leader.
