Unveiling Bhutto

Unveiling Bhutto S Zulfiqar Gilani Zulfi Bhutto of Pakistan: His Life and Times by S Wolpert; Oxford University Press, New York, 1993. ZULFIKAR ALI BHUTTO (January 1928- April 1979) was an enigmatic person. He came from a very well-established Sindhi feudal family but adopted socialism as the platform of his political party. He continually appealed to the masses and brought dignity to the impoverished but also humiliated and trashed anyone who he felt to be crossing his path. He was urbane at one time and a ruthless Sindhi feudal lord at another. The paradoxes of his nature were multiple and complicated [Fallaci 1974; Taseer 1979]. He continues to evoke passion and interest both in the layperson and the scholar. For the interested academic, his life, and death, could be a rich source of information through which to try to understand Pakistani politics and society and/or the enigma of his person. Consequently he has been rather extensively written about. The most recent writings are Syed's The Discourse and Politics of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto (1992) and Wolpert's Zulfi Bhutto of Pakistan: His Life and Times (1993).
