Talk of the Devil   (book)

Talk of the Devil: Encounters with Seven Dictators
Talk of the Devil: Encounters with Seven Dictators

Fallen and disgraced dictators are the focus of this book. This is another book I read to inform myself about recent military history. I heard about the book from an interview on NPR with the author, Ricardo Orizio. It presents information in a very interesting way, first describing the author's trips to the places where he would eventually meet the former leaders, and then the disposition and mannerisms of the interviewee along with their responses to his questions, contrasted with historical facts so as to preserve both points of view intact.
