The Battle For Zimbabwe: The Final Countdown

Recorded on June 29, 2004

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

The past decade has seen Zimbabwe fall from peace and prosperity into violence and poverty. Geoff Hill has spent the past three years conducting hundreds of interviews with ordinary Zimbabweans in both the Mugabe government and the opposition and among the more-than three million exiles living in South Africa and Britain. Their story is chronicled in The Battle for Zimbabwe: The Final Countdown - a harrowing narrative of Zimbabwe's descent into chaos and violence based on eyewitness accounts.

Hailed by critics for its balance, The Battle for Zimbabwe has generated more press in South Africa than any other non-fiction title published this year. The Heritage Foundation invites you to hear Geoff Hill discuss his book, the current situation in Zimbabwe, implications for South Africa and the region, and America's role in helping to build a better future for all Zimbabweans.
