Details

'The most powerful indictment of Mugabe's regime yet written' The Economist 'A brave, sensitive and observant account of Zimbabwe's tragedy, exposing the cruelty of Mugabe's regime and the remarkable courage of those who have defied it' Financial Times In mid-2008, after thirty years of increasingly tyrannical rule, Robert Mugabe lost an election. Instead of conceding defeat, his supporters launched a brutal campaign of terror -- Zimbabweans called it, simply, The Fear. Peter Godwin travels, at considerable risk, to see the havoc raging at the heart of his country, but what emerges from the brutality are the heartbreaking tales of resistance and survival, the astonishing moments of humour and goodwill, and the unforgettable characters who will not be subdued. 'A beautifully written chronicle of his journey through his ravaged but still achingly beautiful homeland' Independent 'An important book detailing the violent realities, the grotesque injustices, the hunger, the sadness, and a portrait of Mugabe, the tyrant who is the cause of it all' Paul Theroux
