Syed Saleem Shahzad (1970-2011) was an investigative reporter who worked as Pakistan Bureau Chief at Asia Times Online. His persistence, courage and reputation allowed him unparalleled access to leaders and fighters in Islamic movements enabling him to secure interviews with figures such as Al-Qaeda commander, Ilyas Kashmiri. He had been both a hostage and a guest of the Taliban, which gave him a unique insight into the organisation's internal structures. He was abducted and killed in Pakistan in May 2011. He left a wife and three children.
'A path breaking book that enhances considerably our understanding of the complexities of Al-Qaeda' -- Hameed Haroon, CEO, The Dawn Media Group, Pakistan 'Whether it's insights into the plans and ideologues driving Al-Qaeda, the low-down on militants across the Hindu Kush, the Taliban-led Afghan insurgency or political wheeling and dealing, Syed Saleem Shahzad is always first on the trail' -- Tony Allison, editor, Asia Times Online 'Syed Saleem Shahzad has long been able to penetrate the Afghan and Pakistani Taliban organisations in a way that no other journalist has. His unique knowledge and contacts make his writing a 'must read' for anyone who wants to understand those movements' -- Gareth Porter, historian and author of 'Perils of Dominance: Imbalance of Power and the Road to War in Vietnam' 'When Syed Saleem Shahzad talks, I listen. He is the most fearless and reliable journalist covering Pakistan and Afghanistan, and that's why his work is read even in the halls of the Pentagon' -- Nir Rosen, author of 'The Triumph of the Martyrs: A Reporter's Journey Into Occupied Iraq' '[Shahzad's] work reporting on terrorism and intelligence issues in Pakistan brought to light the troubles extremism poses to Pakistan's stability' -- Hillary Clinton, US Secretary of State 'Buy Shahzad's book. It tells us what the Pakistani government, whose corruption and brutality Shahzad died to expose, does not want us to know' -- Charles Glass, Taki's Magazine 'A disturbing book. ... Shahzad considers the strategies of al-Qaeda and other radical Islamist movements in terms that are not often heard' -- The Times, Iain Finlayson
