About this deal

We are experiencing delays with deliveries to many countries, but in most cases local services have now resumed. He has also been a freelance contributor for The Friday Times, Pakistan’s widely circulated English publication. Entry of Jemima Goldsmith and launching of his political party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (Pakistan Movement for Justice). Khan ends his 364-page (sans le index) tome on the most positive note, telling us that his political party Tehreek-e-Insaf is the only party which can get Pakistan out of its current desperate crisis. At worst they might have roused a few statements by clerics wanting to mobilise public support among their constituencies, but in the current polarised climate everyone and anyone is at risk if they happen to be on the wrong side of the divide.

Undermined by a ruling elite hungry for money and power, Pakistan now stands alone as the only Islamic country with a nuclear bomb, yet unable to protect its people from the carnage of regular bombings at home. Imran Khan’s books are a testament to his multifaceted personality and his commitment to transforming Pakistan. In all cricketing tours Imran participated, with obvious picking, it is the great West Indian team against whom Imran was always concerned. One may not agree with everything that Khan has to say, but one is forced to admit that Khan has passion, drive and determination for his cause. Khan comes across as a conservative man, one very proud of his Pathan origins, his religion worn on his sleeve.If you are new to Imran Khan’s writings, a good starting point would be “Pakistan: A Personal History” or “Imran Khan: A Personal Memoir.

I felt that people knew nothing about Pakistan but that it is considered to be one of the most dangerous places on Earth. It is because of this attitude that sometimes modernization is resisted because it is perceived to be westernization. Batsman was yet to understand when did the ball released from hand and when did it reached the stumps, all he realized was off the gloves, bat pressed in wet armpit and there was the pavilion. Politics has no bound from here, as he majorly targets former President Parvez Musharraf and his government for being US ally, and destroying Pakistan’s welfare for many incidents.

What a pity, then, that despite the clearly worthy efforts of Amerit Deu the reading of the book is a real obstacle. Published by Harper Collins, comprised of 402 pages and 10 very interesting chapters, Sandford’s pen proved no ink miscarriage or bleaking malfunction as the man in limelight was properly life-summarized. Drawing on the experiences of his own family and his wide travels within his homeland, Pakistan: A Personal History provides a unique insider’s view of a country unfamiliar to a western audience. While some books focus on Pakistani history and politics, others offer universal themes and lessons that can resonate with readers from diverse backgrounds. In the book, Khan details Pakistan's history; his political party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf; and his own life and cricket career.

By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. The book also gives an account where Imran Khan's mother wanted him to get married to Benazir Bhutto (Imran has refuted it) though one wonders what it would have been like. Throughout we see these events viewed not only through the eyes of Westerners, but through those of ordinary Pakistanis. I would also recommend it to anyone confused about Islam to the outsider one doesn’t know what Islam is because on the one extreme there are various fundamentalist groups at war with themselves as much as against the West or the spiritual saints of the Sufi tradition who seem above all worldly and political affairs.From his achievements on the cricket field as the Pakistan captain who captured the World Cup and the game's best all-rounder in history, through to his racy social life?
