Our Votes, Our Guns: Robert Mugabe and the Tragedy of Zimbabwe Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This is a paperbound edition of a 2002 book about which Book News wrote: A study in the decline of national idealism, this book tells of the current period of Zimbabwe's history, from decolonization and the civil war in Rhodesia to the murder of white farmers prior to the 2002 national election. Much of the story focuses on the life of one man—Robert Mugabe—who came to power in 1980, led the country through a long period of economic and social development, and became increasingly autocratic and corrupt in the process. Meredith is a former African correspondent for the London Observer and the Sunday Times. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The only biography of Zimbabwe's dictator despot and what he has wrought upon a once-flourishing state--now updated through the most recent political turmoil. "Our Votes, Our Guns" is a riveting and tragic political story.
