Summary

‘An insightful book on Pakistan politics and Imran Khan, and full of wonderful nuggets which show the extensive research by the author.’—Mihir Bose
This revised and updated edition of the best-selling book on the political journey of a hugely popular, colourful and sometimes controversial public figure of Pakistan brings his story up to the present day, when he has beaten all odds to become the Prime Minister of the country. The decisions he makes or defers, the things he does or doesn’t do could have lasting impact on the politics of Pakistan, even India and the rest of South Asia.

It has been, in many ways, an incredible story, and B.J. Sadiq tells it with rare insight, and in compelling style.

PRAISE

‘One of the most brilliant, readable and compelling accounts of a political career I have read anywhere.’ – Peter Oborne, Associate Editor, The Spectator and author of the critically acclaimed book: The Rise of Political Lying

‘An insightful book on Pakistan politics, and full of wonderful nuggets which show the extensive research by the author.’ – Mihir Bose, author of A History of Indian Cricket

‘A lively and acerbic account of Imran Khan’s political career, providing a fascinating primer on Pakistan’s unlikely Prime Minister. It captures both the wider public enthusiasm behind NayaPakistan and the anger at the failings of the country’s established political elites, who are dealt with in unsparing and colorful fashion by the author.’ – Andrew Small, author of the China – Pakistan Axis: Asia’s New Geopolitics

‘Let there be justice: the political journey of Imran Khan tells the remarkable story of the erstwhile cricket superstar’s entry into the turbulent world of Pakistani Politics. The book provides a detailed, if largely sympathetic account of Khan’s making as a politician up to the parliamentary elections of 2018. For those who want to know more about the man and what drove him to swap the cricket bat for a high-level political career, this book is an indispensable read.’ – Wilfried Swenden, author of Federalism and Regionalism in Western Europe, Co – Director Centre for South Asian Studies, University of Edinburgh, Scotland.

‘Immensely intriguing, highly informative and well-researched, Let There Be Justice: The Political Journey of Imran Khan is an absolute must-read for anyone with an interest in the man, the former cricketer, the politician.’ – Mark Simner, British Military Historian and author of The Sirdar and the Khalifa: Kitchener’s Reconquest of Sudan 1896 – 1898 and The Lion and the Dragon: Britain’s Opium Wars with China 1839 – 1860.

‘A splendid joyride through the life and times of Imran Khan, cricketer turned politician, charismatic and irreverent iconoclast, leading a vibrant country emerging from the ashes and ready for change.’ – John Van Der Kiste, British Historian and author of the immensely acclaimed, Queen Victoria and The European Empires.

In this wonderful book, author B. J. Sadiq takes us by the hand to draw us a very detailed portrait of Pakistan’s political landscape since its creation in 1947. The strength of this story lies in the exceptional will and determination of Imran Khan. Nothing stops him. Neither the jeers, nor the failures, the vexations, nor his clumsiness of beginners, nor the death he touches, nor his lack of political education that ultimately will be his strength.’ – French journalist and writer CLAUDINE LE TOURNEUR D’ISON, Author of Hira Mandi and From Farmer to World Leader: Delfingen
