A British Ambassador's Controversial Defiance of Tyranny in the War on Terror
When Craig Murray arrived in Uzbekistan to take up his post in 2002, he was a young ambassador with a brilliant career and a taste for whisky and women.

The Fournations were ceded the immense Fograscher Plateau as a settlement in their abruptly terminated war with their Titan neighbours, but no one trusts the gift.

In this candid and at times shocking memoir, Murray lays bare the dark and dirty underside of the War on Terror.
