'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 is the founder, Executive Chairman and CEO of the global investment group Investcorp. Now a citizen of the UK, he was born into a prominent family in Iraq. They had to leave their native country in 1958 when a military coup ushered in an era of political and economic deterioration. Mr Kirdar graduated from the University of the Pacific in California with a degree in economics, and holds an MBA from Fordham University in New York. He has also completed Harvard Business School´s Senior Management Programme.


In his passionately argued book, Iraqi-born Nemir Kirdar inspires hope that his country can be rebuilt and act as a beacon for peace and prosperity in a conflict-prone region. He recalls how, in times past, Iraq's various ethnic and religious groups united to ensure law, equality, and economic security. Now, he asks a new generation of Iraqis to rise up, unlock their nation's potential, and achieve world-class standards in health, housing, and education for all. To this end, he presents a complete blueprint for political, economic, and social renewal. "Saving Iraq" is a work of global significance.


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.
