About the author

Shyam Bhatia

Shyam Bhatia, Editor of Asian Affairs magazine, has been a staff foreign correspondent for London's Observer newspaper based in Cairo and Jerusalem, and US correspondent and Foreign Editor of the Deccan Herald. A frequent visitor in the past to Pakistan and an Arabic speaker, he has won the Foreign Reporter of the Year Award in the British media and is the author of India's Nuclear Bomb, Nuclear Rivals in the Middle East, Brighter than the Baghdad Sun and Contemporary Afghanistan. Bhatia and Benazir first met at Oxford where he refused to support her campaign to obtain an honorary degree for her father and then Pakistan Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. A bitter fight over the issue of the honorary degree later gave way to an enduring friendship, supplemented by regular heart-to-heart talks and interviews in London and Dubai. Some details of what Benazir told Bhatia about her family and about Pakistan's defense and foreign policies remained confidential in her life time and are revealed for the first time in this book.
