Globalization or Polarization:
Where is the World Heading?


Sir Jeremy was a British diplomat from 1969 to 2004, serving in Washington DC, Paris, Dubai and Saudi Arabia. He is the former British Ambassador to the UN and Her Majesty's former Special Representative in Iraq, where he worked alongside Paul Bremer within the Coalition Provisional Authority. He left his position as deputy to Bremer in late March 2004, three months before the end of the CPA's term. Since then he has warned that the Coalition should be ready to acknowledge that it was leaving its goals unachieved, and pull out, rather than remain mired in an unwinnable struggle. Sir Jeremy wrote a book about his role in the Iraq war that was expected to be released in the Autumn of 2005. On November 27, 2005 The Times reported that the publication of his book had been barred by the Cabinet Office.
