Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Chilling…A document that should be read by anyone interested in the sacrifices that people are willing to make for the sake of democracy…Not only is The Fear a valuable work of testimony—filled with firsthand accounts of witnesses to the most horrific crimes—but it is also a haunting testament to those survivors’ courage and determination.” New York Times
“Peter Godwin’ s passionate and courageous memoir catalogues Zimbabwe’s descent into horror with such vivid detail…But this is not just a book about the savagery of Mugabe’s goons. It is a testament to the courage and resilience of my fellow countrymen and women…Godwin’s heroes refuse to back down. Again and again they find ways to resist. This remarkable courage runs a thread of hope through the book.” Guardian
“Peter Godwin’s latest book is the most powerful indictment of Robert Mugabe’s regime yet written, marking out the author as one of the sharpest observers of modern Africa.” Economist
The Fear is utterly fearless….incredibly vivid and haunting and, sadly, timely.” Boston Globe
