Idi Amin – The Man Who Stole Uganda

ORDER NOW to receive a signed copy

Published August 2023

Idi Amin was the most brutal dictator of post-colonial Africa. Alex Mitchell is the Australian journalist who secured the first interview with him after his 1971 coup against the elected government of President Milton Obote. The resulting documentary for Granada TV’s World in Action revealed Amin’s crimes to the world, at a time when the coup was supported by the British and Israeli governments. This book tells the hair-raising story of a pioneering reporting assignment, a classic case of journalism as the first rough draft of history – and it adds the fruits of half a century’s subsequent reflection on the vast changes in Africa and the world.
