A unique insider's perspective on the war in Iraq by a senior British diplomat who observed first hand the negotiations in the UN in the lead up to war Few public officials outside the inner circle of the US government had a closer view than Sir Jeremy Greenstock, of the process that led to war in Iraq, and of the coalition government's struggle to produce a new Iraq after the conflict. As ambassador to the UN during the crucial international negotiations and contentious debates over Resolution 1441 and its abandoned successor, Greenstock saw the maneuvering and politicking that surrounded the American-led decision to deal militarily with Saddam. He was then appointed to represent the UK alongside the governing coalition authority, during which period he witnessed the decisions and analyses that led Iraq into chaos. No one is better placed to offer a balanced, understanding, but where necessary, brutally honest judgment on how successfully the mission to bring peace to the region and earn the trust of the Arab world was pursued. Greenstock was in the room as many of the most contentious decisions were made that would determine how Iraq was to be rebuilt after the war. He saw firsthand the challenges, pitfalls and painfully slow progress of reconstruction overseen by Paul Bremer. Written with insight born of the highest level insider access and forthright judgment, this will be the book that defines the story of the venture in Iraq, its rationale, practicality and effect on international relations.
