"The most intimate portrait yet produced of Zimbabwe's clever yet
brutal leader." -"The Economist"
With plunging life expectancy, soaring inflation, and
unemployment, repression, and starvation fueling a mass exodus,
Zimbabwe is a nation in crisis. Its president, Robert Mugabe-once
lauded for his heroics as a guerilla leader who fought against
white-minority rule in the 1960s- is now seen as the man who ruined
the country and cast shame on the African conti-nent. Beginning
with a dinner shared with Mugabe the freedom fight-er and ending in
a searching interview with Mugabe as Zimbabwe's president more than
thirty years later, Heidi Holland's incisive and timely
investigation charts Mugabe's gradual self- destruction and probes
the mystery of Africa's loyalty to one of its worst dictators.
