In this beautifully filmed series, historian Rory Stewart studies the extraordinary landscape, oral history and archaeology of the Anglo-Scottish border, finding parallels with frontiers from Turkey to Nepal. Two thousand years ago, the Romans dominated the world. They divided their northernmost territory with an arbitrary marker; Hadrian's Wall split the communities of Britain in two. Border Lands explores the Anglo-Scottish borderlands' tumultuous history, learning how this boundary defined the region. Having served as a diplomat in fiercely contested borderlands from Indonesia and the Balkans to Iraq and Afghanistan, Rory has witnessed the effect of artificial frontiers, and the destructive potential of new nationalisms. Drawing on this experience, Rory reveals how borders are forged -- both in the land and in our imagination

Occupational hazards : my time governing in Iraq by Rory Stewart( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the age of thirty, Rory Stewart was appointed coalition deputy Governor of two provinces in the Marsh region of southern Iraq. He kept a journal of his experiences struggling to control assassinations and tribal conflict, rebuild the region's infrastructure and establish a new Iraqi government before the hand over of power in June 2004. His time in the Marsh region culminated in a terrifying siege during which he and his team were under sustained attack by insurgents. Haunted by his previous work and travels in Asia, Rory brings a unique sensitivity and perspective to the daily interactions between Iraqis and the coalition and to the perils and even comedy of foreign occupation"--Audio cassette container
Can intervention work? by Rory Stewart( )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rory Stewart and Gerald Knaus distill their remarkable firsthand experiences of political and military interventions into a potent examination of what we can and cannot achieve in a new era of 'nation building.' As they delve into the massive, military-driven efforts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Balkans, the expansion of the EU, and the bloodless 'color' revolutions in the former Soviet states, they reveal consequences for international relations, human rights, understanding of state building
Occupational hazards : my time governing Iraq by Rory Stewart( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Iraq. September 2003; it's six months after the US-led invasion, and the country is in anarchy - the infrastructure has collapsed, terrorist attacks have begun and the coalition has decided to rule directly via the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA). Rory Stewart, a young British diplomat, is appointed as the coalition deputy governor (CPA deputy governorate coordinator) of a province of 850,000 people in the southern marshland. There, in the cities of Amara and then Nasiriyah, he and his colleagues confront gangsters, Iranian-linked politicians, tribal vendettas and a full Islamist insurgency, in which Stewart is besieged in his compound under continual fire, struggling to keep his staff alive. They negotiate hostage releases, appoint Iraqi governors and police chiefs, patch up the shattered infrastructure and, in June 2004, hand over sovereignty to the Iraqi government. Stewart's almost colonial role may never exist again. His insider's account reveals a side of Iraq hidden from most foreign journalists and soldiers and raises questions about the whole project of 'state-building' in the twenty-first century
The songlines by Bruce Chatwin( Book )

We wish to inform you that tomorrow we will be killed with our families : stories from Rwanda by Philip Gourevitch( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1994, the Rwandan government orchestrated a campaign of extermination, in which everyone in the Hutu majority was called upon to murder everyone in the Tutsi minority. Close to a million people were slaughtered in a hundred days, and the rest of the world did nothing to stop it. A year later, Philip Gourevitch went to Rwanda to investigate the most unambiguous genocide since Hitler's war against the Jews. Hailed by the Guardian as one of the hundred greatest nonfiction books of all time, We Wish To Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families is a first-hand account one of the defining outrages of modern history, an unforgettable anatomy of Rwanda's decimation. As riveting as it is moving, it is a profound reckoning with humanity's betrayal and its perseverance."--Publisher description

Heirs to forgotten kingdoms : journeys into the disappearing religions of the Middle East by Gerard Russell( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite its reputation for religious intolerance, the Middle East has long sheltered many distinctive and strange faiths: one regards the Greek prophets as incarnations of God, another reveres Lucifer in the form of a peacock, and yet another believes that their followers are reincarnated beings who have existed in various forms for thousands of years. These religions represent the last vestiges of the magnificent civilizations in ancient history: Persia, Babylon, Egypt in the time of the Pharaohs. Their followers have learned how to survive foreign attacks and the perils of assimilation. But today, with the Middle East in turmoil, they face greater challenges than ever before

Les marches : aux frontières de l'identité britannique by Rory Stewart( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in French and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rory Stewart longe à pied le mur d'Hadrien, bâti autour de l'an 120 aux confins de la Britannia romaine pour la protéger des incursions barbares. Sur cette frontière chevauchant celle qui sépare aujourd'hui l'Angleterre de l'Écosse, où le parti indépendantiste est majoritaire, il retrouve son père, Brian, pour un ultime dialogue. Écossais, ils ont servi la Couronne. Le père, sinophone, fut l'un des patrons des services secrets de Sa Majesté en Asie. Le fils, né à Hong Kong en 1973, arabisant, fut gouverneur adjoint en Irak après l'invasion de 2003. Il est député de la circonscription anglaise de Penrith and The Border et ministre. Cet infatigable marcheur a déjà parcouru 9 000 km en Afghanistan en 2002 ; le récit de ce périple est un "chef-d'œuvre tout simplement " selon le New York Times. La description lyrique de paysages sauvages égratignés par la modernité convoque Histoire et mémoire, nouant un dialogue passionné entre Brian et Rory. Ils confrontent leurs vies aux vestiges impériaux de Rome et de Londres, tissant un récit de filiation qui enfante les grands débats de notre temps. À l'heure où le Brexit déchire notre voisin et partenaire, où l'Europe se cherche au péril des nationalismes, populismes et mondialisation, ce document extraordinaire remet l'homme au cœur des enjeux politiques du Vieux Continent" (ed.)
The places in between by Rory Stewart( )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In January 2002, Rory Stewart walked across Afghanistan-surviving by his wits, his knowledge of Persian dialects and Muslim customs, and the kindness of strangers. By day he passed through mountains covered in nine feet of snow, hamlets burned and emptied by the Taliban, and communities thriving amid the remains of medieval civilizations. By night he slept on villagers" floors, shared their meals, and listened to their stories of the recent and ancient past. Along the way Stewart met heroes and rogues, tribal elders and teenage soldiers, Taliban commanders and foreign-aid workers. He was also adopted by an unexpected companion-a retired fighting mastiff he named Babur in honor of Afghanistan's first Mughal emperor, in whose footsteps the pair was following. Through these encounters-by turns touching, confounding, surprising, and funny- Stewart makes tangible the forces of tradition, ideology, and allegiance that shape life in the map's countless places in between
