Fluently written, impeccably researched and never short of extraordinary insights, this is a landmark publication. -Farzana Shaikh, Literary Review 'A gripping and timely take on a family and a country - past, present and future.'-Mishal Husain, Broadcaster for BBC News 'Bennett-Jones has repeatedly shown himself to be one of the most perceptive, impartial and knowledgeable journalists reporting Pakistan. Rigorous, authoritative and readable, full of both insights and investigation, this new work is an important addition to the literature of a very important, and often very misunderstood, state. '-Jason Burke, author of Al-Qaeda 'Blending the Bhutto family's eventful history with that of the broader political developments, Bennett-Jones' exploration is riveting and thought-provoking in equal measure.'-Sarah Ansari, author of Boundaries of Belonging
