Dinner with Mugabe: The Untold Story of a Freedom Fighter who Became a Tyrant
"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.
