One for the top ten

Once I finished this book I wanted to start reading it again. It is a great book to see what is going on day to day to unit people who have diverse ideas on what they want in a government. Mr. Stewart's writing style makes you feel like he is talking to you in person.

If you are tired of the standard news reports and flashing images try this book I highly recommend it.

Equally important is the simple fact that Rory Stewart's style is wonderfully clear and engaging. You may disagree with his implied conclusions, but I think you will enjoy your journey to those conclusions.
