Overview

Pakistan's president Pervez Musharraf governs a critical state in the worldwide war on terror. Before becoming president, Musharraf had spent his entire career in the Pakistani army. He helped train Afghani guerrilla forces to overthrow the Soviet regime and was also involved in leading Pakistani troops against Indian forces as part of the continuing struggle between the two nations over the disputed Kashmir area. During his tenure as president, the Pakistani economy has grown. Nevertheless, Musharraf has been forced to contend with political groups who have not supported his authoritarian government. Pervez Musharraf keenly examines the life and career of this leader, whose decisions are capable of influencing some of the most pressing issues of our time.
