In the closing weeks of 2003, Stanford University professor Larry Diamond got a phone call from Condoleezza Rice, his former Stanford colleague, asking him to go to Iraq to help lay the foundation for a new, postwar democracy. Diamond was in Iraq from January to April 2004, and saw firsthand how the "regime change" effort was being conducted. He analyzes that effort in this book.
