'My hope for a better future for Iraq is based not on a fanciful dream but on the hard realities of what Iraq used to be: a country on the road to openness, tolerance and prosperity.' A personal manifesto for the rebirth of Iraq, a country shattered by dictatorship and foreign occupation.
Nemir Kirdar has lived Iraq's history. From the country of his youth - a stable and vibrant land of great promise, to the 1958 coup that plunged Iraq into a period of terror and destruction, foreign occupation, and the fall of Saddam Hussein, he's been uniquely placed to comment on events and propose solutions.
Now Kirdar shares his vision for tomorrow's Iraq, providing a blueprint for political, economic and social renewal. Calling for Iraqis to rise up and unlock their nation's potential, Kirdar affirms that Iraq can again be unified. SAVING IRAQ is a personal account but also a book of global significance, offering steps towards resolution in a shattered country.
Nemir Kirdar is the founder, Executive Chairman and CEO of the global investment group, Investcorp, which has operations in New York, London and the Arabian Gulf. Born in Iraq, he is now a British citizen and lives in London. He is also the author of Saving Iraq and In Pursuit of Fulfilment.
