What’s it prefer to be the son or daughter of a dictator? A monster at the Stalin point? What’s it wish to undergo a reputation synonymous with oppression, terror, and evil?

Jay Nordlinger got down to solution that query, and does so during this ebook. He surveys 20 dictators in all. they're the worst of the worst: Stalin, Mao, Idi Amin, Pol Pot, Saddam Hussein, etc. The publication isn't approximately them, quite, even though after all they determine in it. It’s approximately their children.

Some of them are absolute loyalists. They respect, revere, or worship their father. a few of them really prevail their father as dictator—as in North Korea, Syria, and Haiti. a few of them have doubts. a few them turn into full-blown dissenters, even defectors. some of the daughters have the adventure of getting their husband killed by way of their father. each one of these young children are rocked through battle, legal, exile, or different upheaval.

Obviously, the youngsters have issues in universal. yet also they are contributors, making of lifestyles what they could. the most factor they've got in universal is that this: they've been dealt a really, very strange hand.

What may you do, for those who have been the offspring of an notorious dictator, who lords it over your country?

An early reader of this publication stated, “There’s an opera on each page”: a drama, a tragedy (or even a comedy). one other reader acknowledged he had learn the bankruptcy on Bokassa “with my eyes on stalks.”

Meet those characters for your self. wonder, shudder, and ponder.
