By September 2003, six months after the US-led invasion of Iraq, the anarchy had begun. Rory Stewart, a young British diplomat, was appointed as the Coalition Provisional Authority's deputy governor of a province of 850,000 people in the southern marshland region. There, he and his colleagues confronted gangsters, Iranian-linked politicians, tribal vendettas and a full Islamist insurgency.

Rory Stewart's inside account of the attempt to re-build a nation, the errors made, the misunderstandings and insurmountable difficulties encountered, reveals a unique side to Iraq, hidden from most foreign journalists and soldiers. Stewart is an award-winning writer and his luminous voice provides extraordinary insight into the comedy, occasional heroism and moral risks of foreign occupation.
