With her experience governing Pakistan and living and studying in the West, Benazir Bhutto was versed in the complexities of the conflict between the Islamic world and the West from both sides. She was profoundly aware of the risk she took in returning to Pakistan in October 2007--but she was hopeful that she could be a catalyst for change.
In Reconciliation, Bhutto spoke out not just to the West but also to Muslims across the globe--presenting an image of modern Islam that defies the negative caricatures and offering a bold new agenda for how to stem the tide of Islamic radicalism and to rediscover the values of tolerance and justice that lie at the heart of her religion.
"Fascinating. . . . Stirring and important. . . . A book of enormous intelligence, courage, and clarity. . . . The best-written and most persuasive modern interpretation of Islam I have read."
--Fareed Zakaria, The New York Times Book Review
