The Emperor


This book is a brilliant portrait of the last days of Haile Salassie,the Emperor of Ethiopia,and his maniacal,medieval court.The real subject of this memoir is not Haile Selassies primitive autocracy,it is totalitarianism reduced to its primordial elemnts.Few 20th century rulers have reighed with more imperial assurance and panache.A charmer,a demagogue,and a despot with implacable will to power.
