Oh dear. Unfortunately, the author of this book has tacked a complex and controversial subject matter with astounding simplicity and as such, really gives nothing to the reader who required a more thought provoking and indepth discussion on this subject. The author presents very tenuous arguments for why these atrocities are committed and does not provide adequate references or sources. This reads like a GCSE level essay where they author is asked to pick out vague psychological constructs that each dictator may share and present a basic analysis. No depth, no real psychological analysis, no good!!!
