From the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, who finished writing this extraordinary book just days before her assassination, comes a groundbreaking vision of how to bridge the widening gap between the Islamic world and the West. Benazir Bhutto returned to Pakistan in October 2007, after eight years of exile, hopeful that she could be a catalyst for change. Upon a tumultuous reception, she survived a suicide-bomb attack that killed nearly 200 of her countrymen. But she continued to forge ahead, with more courage and conviction than ever, since she knew that time was running outA??for the future of her nation, and for her life. In Reconciliation, Bhutto recounts in gripping detail her final months in Pakistan and offers a bold new agenda for how to stem the tide of Islamic radicalism and to rediscover the values of tolerance and justice that lay at the heart of her religion. After reading this book, it will become even clearer what the world has lost by her assassination.

Professional reviews

"Early in RECONCILIATION, narrator Rita Wolf vividly describes a scene of haunting poignancy: the attempt on Bhutto's life during her triumphant return to Pakistan in October 2007 to reclaim her leadership of the Pakistan People's Party. Two months later she would be dead, and her book published posthumously. Wolf's lovely voice embodies Bhutto's elegance, intelligence, and passion for her country. At once a personal political manifesto and a scholarly treatise on Islam, the book might not be an easy read, but Wolf's skillful narration brings this extraordinary woman back to life and gives her voice even greater importance today. This is a must-listen for anyone who wants to understand the history of the troubled relationship between the Muslim world and the West. M.S.W. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
