Format: Hardcover
Great history of a true psychopathic demon. A must read for anyone interested in what dictatorship is all about. Can draw many similarities with current regimes around the world. One thought I took away from this book: this is what happens when the people are unarmed or disarmed. A real lesson for Americans.

Melady needed an editor to keep him going; the work is interesting, but poorly organized and lacks specific evidence to support his analysis. A chronological approach would have made it clearer.

Format: Hardcover
This book is old (from the 1970's) and written with a personal bias, but it gives a good idea of the Amin reign.
