5.0 out of 5 stars Diplomat's posting in Uzbekistan and how he struggles with his ideals
Another memoir of a British diplomat (there's quite a number of these around, and pretty good ones too) that's a very good and compelling read. Like most modern memoirs of British diplomats, it provides a very interesting look into the world of modern diplomacy and the new challenges Ambassadors and diplomats face in their postings and in carrying out their work. This one...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what it seems!
This book is a copy of Murray's 'Murder in Samarkand', so don't buy if you've already got that one. Very frustrating as it doesn't say on here that it is!

5.0 out of 5 stars Diplomat's posting in Uzbekistan and how he struggles with his ideals, 2 Feb. 2015
This review is from: Dirty Diplomacy: The Rough-And-Tumble Adventures of a Scotch-Drinking, Skirt-Chasing, Dictator-Busting and Thoroughly Unrepentant Ambas (Paperback)
Another memoir of a British diplomat (there's quite a number of these around, and pretty good ones too) that's a very good and compelling read. Like most modern memoirs of British diplomats, it provides a very interesting look into the world of modern diplomacy and the new challenges Ambassadors and diplomats face in their postings and in carrying out their work. This one is particularly interesting because it is about a diplomat's posting in Uzbekistan and how he struggles with his ideals and the pragmatism of a foreign policy he is sworn to implement.
