12 October 1999, Nawaz Sharif, then prime minister of Pakistan,
announced that he had retired his Chief of Army Staff, Gen. Pervez Musharraf.
By the end of the day it was sharif who was out of power. On board a PIA flight
to Karachi from Colombo,
Musharraf knew little about the drama unfolding on the ground, but he found
himself taking over as Pakistan’s
Chief executive once the plane landed.
The Years in Power Charts the rise and fall of Gen. Pervez Musharraf, Pakistan’s most
controversial leader since Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. We see different aspects of the
soldier-turned-politician: the self-styled statesman, the sophisticated
globetrotter, the resolute face of the US-led global war on terror, the secular
politicians’ bete noire, the Islamists’ pet peeve, and most of all, the feared,
revered and finally disowned president of an Islamic republic. Any way you look
at it, Musharraf’s life in the hot seat of Pakistan’s politics is a
rollercoaster tale of a commando smitten with an ‘enlightened moderation’ that
succumbs, in the end, to the many contradictions within the man himself.
A no-holds-barred political biography by an astute political commentator and journalist, Musharraf: The Years in Power provides perspective on the man whose politics have changed the face of the Indian subcontinent.
