    Pervez Musharraf(Author)
It is almost unprecedented for a head of state to publish a memoir while still in office. But Pervez Musharraf is no ordinary head of state. As President of Pakistan since 1999, his is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, and he continues to play a crucial role in the global war on terror. A one-time supporter of the Taliban, a general who fought in several wars, President Musharraf took a decisive turn against militant Islam in 2001. Since then he has survived two assassination attempts; rooted out militants in his own government; helped direct countless raids against al-Qaeda both in his cities and in the mountains; and tracked Osama bin Laden with technical and human intelligence.IN THE LINE OF FIRE is astonishingly revealing and honest about dozens of topics of intense interest to the world. Among its many revelations: exactly how Pakistani authorities tracked down and smashed three major al-Qaeda control centres in the mountains; how al-Qaeda's many-layered structure was revealed after the assassination attempts; Bin Laden's current position within the al-Qaeda hierarchy; what it has been like to deal with Bush and Blair; how Pakistan and India have avoided nuclear confrontation; and much more.The terrible earthquake of 2005, killing nearly 40,000 Pakistanis, is just one chapter in a life and career that has been filled with danger and drama. The worldwide launch of President Musharraf's memoir promises to be a sensation.

Pervez Musharraf has been President of Pakistan since 1999. A former commando, he has been at the front line of the war on terror since 2001 and has remained in office despite two assassination attempts. He lives in Karachi, Pakistan. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

  • By Suki on 20 June 2017

    Not a good read

  • By Mudassar Saeed Khan on 27 September 2006

    Although this book has sparked many controversies in Pakistan, India and world over, the book has proved to be really interesting and worth reading. President General Pervez Musharraf's revelation about USA's threat to bomb Pakistan in 2001 played a vital role in making this autobiography a big hit even before its launch. This book covers General's personal life, early career, political happenings of Pakistan, the famous Kargil conflict, nuclear proliferation, 9/11 and what not about Pakistan.Anyone who is with or against Musharraf should read this book as it contains very interesting information, incidents and views by the president of Pakistan. Someone said it right - "controversy brings hits".

    Great book. I enjoyed reading this.

  • By Amir Ali on 7 May 2017

    Well written, BUT some plagiarism detected.It was sugar coated with some obvious cotradictions as General is now turning his back against lots of claims made in this book.

  • By Prof Whiteside on 25 October 2006

    As the blurb on the cover states, it is unprecedented for a sitting head to divulge memoirs in such fashion.I think there is a reason for this.Early life is skipped through like a playful child dodging cracks in the paving. There is much awkward self-aggrandisement to the detriment of the work. This makes it serve poorly as an objective piece. One would expect an element of bias of course, but the lack of subtlety in some areas suggest the psychological profile of an egomaniac. It would be useful to have a biographical version to compare whilst reading this version, which is a lengthy attempt to convince the world of his own statesman status. This is at odds with the despot dictator the world saw seize power in yet another a much troubled British ex colony.
