3.0 out of 5 stars A book for the bog, 20 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An amusing but rather lightweight self promotion. Amusing and at times alarming insight into the world of the UK FCO. Not much analysis .. an occassional book for the bog

Price: £8.54

4.0 out of 5 stars A good concise read by two authors who have been there and done it, 20 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A refreshing and candid comparison of chapter 7 interventions and attempts at stabilisation and post conflict reconstrcuction and why they go wrong .. damning expose of poor governmental planning, plus policy without objective or end state.
