Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

BROTHERS UNDER THE SKIN is an impassioned reflection by prize winning author, Christopher Hope, on the all too familiar traits of tyranny. From Milsovik's Serbia, to the killing fields of Matabeleland, Christopher Hope reveals the vainglorious essence of tyranny as being the same, regardless of the race, nation or ideology it claims to embody. Bringing his unique experience and dazzling prose style to bare on the subject, he has produced a disturbing, wise, yet amusing text that combines memoir, interview and reportage to reveal the tragic absurdity of one man's lust for power

a] frequently hilarious and sometimes profound reverie. . . his feelings are unerring and his writing beautiful - Sunday Times

his record of a car ride with Ian Smith is priceless. . .digging into tyranny is what Hope does best - The Times

the author's passionate commitment to truth and his poet's prose raise it - Financial Times

it is] superb, telling us more about the anthropology of power than a thousand academic monographs. . . - Irish Times
