The story of Benazir Bhutto, the first woman to lead a
Muslim nation, seems lifted straight from Greek tragedy.
Born to privilege as the daughter of one of Pakistanâ€™s
feudal families, she was groomed for a diplomatic career
was thrust into the political arena when her father,
Pakistan's charismatic and controversial prime minister,
executed. She then led Pakistan, one of the most
and impoverished nations in the world, through two terms
prime minister in the 1980s and 1990s, but she struggled
ward off charges of corruption and retain her tenuous
on power and was eventually forced into exile. Bhutto
returned to Pakistan in 2007, only to be assassinated by
suicide bomber as her motorcade rode into Karachi for
was intended to be a triumphant return.
Including interviews with key figures who knew Bhutto and
have never before spoken on the record, Benazir Bhutto:
Favored Daughter illuminates Bhuttoâ€™s tragic life as well
the role she played as the first female prime minister of
Pakistan. Celebrated literary critic Brooke Allen
Bhutto in a way not many have done before in this taut
biography of a figure who had a profound effect on the
volatile politics of the Middle East, drawing on
contemporary news sources and eyewitness reports, as well
accounts from her supporters and her enemies.
