Product Description

Product Description

For more than a decade, Jacques Pauw has traversed his native continent in pursuit of warlords and drug traffickers, child soldiers and charlatans, adventure and anarchy. What he found was a rich array of personalities and a panoply of stories, ranging from the profoundly tragic to the intensely personal. Pauw’s stories range from South Africa to Rwanda, from Sierra Leone and the Sudan to Mozambique. Readers are taken behind the scenes of sensational news reports with compassion, humour and occasional cynicism and emerge in the knowledge that, even if it’s true that there is nothing new out of Africa, the writer has found fresh ways to present time-honoured tales of love, life, misery and mortality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chilling + fascinating 13 April 2009
By A. Van Wyk - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is not a book for the faint hearted. Pauw does indeed "dance with devils". It cannot leave you untouched as it describes the human tragedy behind the atrocities committed in Rwanda and the apartheid regime in South Africa in grim detail. Excellent work from one of, if not the best, investigative journalist in South Africa. Highly recommended. Should be read by every budding journo.

I got this book as a gift and found it a riveting and profound read. If you are interested in human behaviour and the nature of the human world, I would highly recommend this book.

Being a colleague of Jacques in years gone by, I have even more respect for his journalistic abilities. Wonderful, graphic and such sad times!
5.0 out of 5 stars The Evil that Men Do........ 24 Mar 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An extremely interesting book. Journalist Jacques Pauw takes you down the dark pathways that men so often follow. One of the those books that I almost feel like I am part of, because the author pulls you in, hook, line and sinker.

Very good, very interesting, insightful. A well written book that had spellbound right to the end.
A difficult book to put down written by a very capable author.
