From Banking to the Thorny World of Politics (Signed copies)



Aziz steered one of the biggest economic turnarounds in recent history and negotiated Pakistan’s aid package with the United States. While campaigning to be prime minister, he survived a car bombing by al-Qaeda, which drove him to engage in the fight against global terrorism. He analyses each of Pakistan’s key relationships, namely with the United States, Afghanistan, India and China.

Aziz draws on his first-hand experiences in office, as well as hundreds of hours of interviews with the global players who shaped our present state of world affairs. From Donald Rumsfeld to General James Jones to Tony Blair, they give their take on the policy decisions of their time and the geopolitical environment today.

From Banking to the Thorny World of Politics features original material on Islamabad’s relationship with the United States, its dealings with Afghanistan, Benazir Bhutto’s fateful comeback, the attempted Kashmir peace settlement – and what Pakistan really knew about Osama Bin Laden’s whereabouts.  Author: Shaukat Aziz (Quartet Bks Ltd, May 2016, HC, 325 pp)
