Craig Murray's book, Murder in Samarkand, is part of a 3 for 2 promotion in Waterstone's. (That means that if you go shopping with two friends, you can get a copy each and pay for only two of them). It's also reduced in Waterstone's internet shop. You don't have to buy it there. You may prefer to go to a good local bookshop. There are various on-line booksellers. Your library should stock a copy - or several. If they don't, why not ask them to order a copy?

You can buy Murder in Samarkand in paperback or in hardback - or borrow it.

Above all - read it. It's a good read and has important things to say. The focus is Uzbekistan. But it discusses the way British foreign policy operates. It explains a great deal of the background to the so-called "War on Terror".

And while some books on politics aren't that gripping, this is a real page-turner - with jokes too!

P.S. (added later) Craig Murray has just posted a letter about the book from Noam Chomsky on his blog.
