Description:

Single pictorial cover sheet detached from larger publication; fine as is. Benazir Bhutto (1953-2007), first woman to lead a Muslim state (Pakistan). Here she appears on the cover of the July-August 1989 issue of Harvard Magazine, where she has inscribed the photo to an acquaintance. Bhutto received her undergraduate degree from Radcliffe College at Harvard University, where she graduated cum laude in comparative government in 1973. She later referred to her four years at Harvard as the "happiest of her life" and is reported to have said that her experience there formed the "very basis" of her belief in democracy. She was the eldest child of former Pakistani Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, and she made politics her career. She led the Pakistani People's Party and twice served as Prime Minister of Pakistan. Both times she was removed from office on charges of corruption. She spent nearly a decade in self-imposed exile in Dubai before returning to Pakistan in October 2007 after reaching a deal with Pakistani strongman Pervez Musharaff, under which she was granted amnesty from all charges. She ran as candidate for Parliament in the general election of January 2008, but was assassinated after leaving a politcal rally in Rawalpindi in December 2007.In addition, a 1991 typed letter signed from former diplomat and commentator Peter Galbraith accompanies the inscribed cover photo. Galbraith's father, famed Harvard economist John Kenneth Galbraith, was a teacher, mentor, and friend to Benazir Bhutto. The photograph shown on the Harvard Magazine cover was taken in the Galbraith home. Bookseller Inventory #
