'Masterful account ... Plaut's extensive evidence shows how the regime's repressive stance in power is a consequence of its ruler.' * Times Higher Education *
'An outstanding insider's analysis of the continent's most noteworthy example of political repression . . . Understanding Eritrea is a sobering, incisive analysis, replete with detail not readily available elsewhere.'
'With my own eyes I witnessed the courage and sacrifice of the women and men who fought the thirty-three year war that brought the birth of an independent Eritrea and, they hoped, a future of freedom. They have, however, been tragically betrayed by a brutal dictatorship that inflicts relentless misery and forces thousands to flee. Martin Plaut's brilliant and searing factual account of the descent from hope to tyranny should be used to prosecute the regime and expose the powers that ignore its enduring atrocities.' * Glenys Kinnock, Baroness Kinnock of Holyhead, former Minister of State for Africa and the United Nations *
