Title: The Fear. The Last Days of Robert Mugabe
Description: (London: Picador, 2010) 9780330513951. . 232 x 152 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. (xiv) + 353 + (i); map. A little foxing; small crease to bottom fore-corner of lower cover. Very good condition. "In mid-2008, after nearly three decades of increasingly tyrannical rule, Robert Mugabe, the eighty-four-year-old ruler, met his politburo. He had just lost an election. But instead of conceding power, he was persuaded to launch a brutal campaign of terror to cower his citizens. Journalist and author Peter Godwin was one of the few observers to slip into the country and bear witness to the terrifying period that Zimbabweans call, simply, The Fear. Following on from his compelling and moving memoirs, Mukiwa and When a Crocodile Eats the Sun, this is a personal journey through the country Peter Godwin grew up in and knows so well - a landscape and a people, grotesquely altered, laid waste by a raging despot.".
