About the Book
Born only ve years after Pakista was created in 1947, Imran Khan has lived hiscountry's history. Undermined by a ruling elite hugry for money and power, Pakistannow stands alone as the only Islami country with a nuclear bomb, yet it is unable toprotect its people from the carnage of regular bombings from terrorists and its own ally,America. Now with the revelation that Pakistan has been the hiding place of Osama binLaden for several years, that relationship can only grow more strained. How did it reachthis ashpoint of instability and injstice with such potentially catastrophic reslts forPakistan?Recouting his country's history thrugh the prism of his own memories, Imra Khanstarts from its foundation, ripped out of the dying British Raj. He guides us through andcomments on subsequent historical evelopments which shook the Muslim world -thewars with India in 1965 and 1971, th Iranian Revoution of 1979, the Soviet invsion ofAfghanistan, the 9/11 terrorist attacks and Americas retribution ten years later with theassassiation of bin Laden -to the current controversial and intractable war inAfghanistan. We see hese events viwed not only through the eyes of Westerners, butthrough those of ordinary Pakistanis.Drawing on the experences of his own family and his wide travels within his homeland,

It is at once absorbing and insightful casing fresh light upon a country whoseculture he believes is argely misundrstood by the West.
