Twenty minor despots of the twenty-first century
Stark Raving Rulers is a series of profiles of twenty of the world’s most ruthless dictators.
In many forgotten or ignored parts of the world, there are still men who have inherited entire countries from their families, or blatantly rig elections to stay in power. Like latter-day Roman Emperors, they rule according to their whim.
All of them are fascinating characters. While they all share a ruthlessness, their personalities differ wildly: from the coldly messianic to the downright bizarre.
