Slain Pakistani leader Benazir Bhutto finished writing Reconciliation: Islam, Democracy, and the West (Harper, $27.95) several days before her Dec. 27 death, and the book will be on store shelves Feb. 12, according to Bloomberg News.


Bhutto's husband, Asif Ali Zardari, and the couple's three children, have written a new afterword, and Bhutto's collaborator, Mark Siegel will step in for the book tour.

According to the publisher, "In Reconciliation, Bhutto recounts in gripping detail her final months in Pakistan and offers a bold new agenda for how to stem the tide of Islamic radicalism and to rediscover the values of tolerance and justice that lie at the heart of her religion."

Harper also has doubled the first printing, from 50,000 to 100,000, in anticipation of added interest due to Bhutto's death. Also, in April, Harper will re-release Bhutto's 1989 autobiography Daughter of Destiny, with a new epilogue written by Siegel.
