Description:
For three years, from 2007 until 2010, Sherard Cowper-Coles wason the diplomatic front line in Kabul as the West's mission in Afghanistan sank deeper into crisis, first as British Ambassador and, later, as the Foreign Secretary's Special Representative.

In Cables from Kabul he provides a ringside seat in a high-octane narrative that transports the reader from the backstreets of Kabul and fly0blown villages of the Helmand Valley to the corridors of power in London and Washington. Packed with colourful portraits of major political and diplomatic players such as President Karazi and the US Special Representative Richard Holbrooke, the book gives a rich flavour of embassy life in one of the most dangerous places on earth.

As Our Man in Kabul, nobody is better placed to tell this story. Powerful, witty and astonishingly frank, Cables from Kabul explains how we got into the quagmire of Afghanistan, and how we can get out of it.
