About this book
Subtitled, "My Time Governing In Iraq". Rory Stewart, a young British diplomat, was appointed as the Coalition Provisional Authority's deputy governor of a province of Iraq in 2003, six months after the US-led invasion. This is his inside account of the attempt to rebuild a nation, and reveals a unique side to the war-torn country, hidden from most journalists. 'Witty and perceptive' "The Times"
