Product description

Review

'[Plaut] is well placed to tell Eritrea's modern story and does so masterfully ... Throughout he condenses disparate material into tight and accessible prose ... Plaut's valuable book has at least ensured that, despite the regime's best efforts, this country is not fully hidden from view.' --Times Literary Supplement

'Masterful account ... Plaut's extensive evidence shows how the regime's repressive stance in power is a consequence of its ruler.' --Times Higher Education

'Martin Plaut's brilliant and searing factual account of the descent from hope to tyranny should be used to prosecute the regime and expose the powers that ignore its enduring atrocities.' --Glenys Kinnock, Baroness Kinnock of Holyhead, former Minister of State for Africa and the United Nations

About the Author

Martin Plaut, the BBC World Service's former Africa Editor, has published extensively on African affairs. An adviser to the Foreign Office and the US State Department he is Senior Researcher at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies.
