9780141040790: Dinner with Mugabe: The Untold Story of a Freedom Fighter Who Became a Tyrant

At a time when the world waits anxiously to see what will happen next in Zimbabwe—when there is little food in the country’s shops, life expectancy is plunging and Zimbabweans are fleeing repression and unemployment—this book gets to grips with the man at the helm of a corrupt regime; the man behind the monster.

Holland’s tireless investigation begins with her having dinner with Mugabe the freedom fighter and ends in a searching interview with Zimbabwe’s president in December 2007, more than 30 years later.

"The most intimate portrait yet produced of Zimbabwe’s clever but brutal leader." —The Economist
