Syed Saleem Shahzad (1970-2011) was an investigative reporter who worked as Pakistan Bureau Chief at Asia Times Online. 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 behind 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
