After her father, former Pakistani Prime Minister Zulfikar Bhutto, was assassinated, Benazir Bhutto parlayed her social activism into a remarkable political career. The first female leader of an Islamic nation, Bhutto led Pakistan towards democracy through tumultuous times. Eventually put under house arrest and imprisoned, her legacy is fraught with controversy. This insightful portrait explores her successes and failures within the Islamic world and her family, revealing the full story behind a brilliant woman who believed in freedom for her country.
A worthy portrait of a phenomenal woman.
