In mid-2008, after 30 years of tyrannical rule, Robert Mugabe met his politburo. He had just lost an election. But instead of conceding power, he was persuaded to launch a campaign of terror to cower his citizens. In this remarkable look inside Mugabe's isolated yet restive Zimbabwe, journalist Godwin and his sister, Georgina, return to their childhood home and tour the economically devastated and state-terrorized cities, farms, and diamond mines at considerable personal risk, gathering candid interviews with dispossessed farmers, marginalized elites, and former insiders to cast a light on the workings of Mugabe's dictatorship and psychology, and the "fear factor" crucial to his control.
