President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan governed a critical state in the worldwide war on terror. Before becoming president, Musharraf spent his entire career in the Pakistani army. He helped train Afghani guerrilla forces to overthrow the Soviet regime. He 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 grew. Nevertheless, Musharraf was forced to contend with political groups who did not support his authoritarian government. Some of these groups support al-Qaeda. However, after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Musharraf became a strong ally of the United States in the war on terror. Pervez Musharraf keenly examines the life and career of this leader, whose decisions were capable of influencing some of the most pressing issues of our time.
