Gr 5 Up-- A profile of Zimbabwe's first prime minister that shows the struggle for black political power in this emerging nation. The history of Southern Rhodesia is outlined; Mugabe's political career is described in relation to the increasing move for change in the 1960s. The writing is clear and straightforward; this is not a glossy portrait of Mugabe. His bitter struggle with political foe Joshu Nkomo is detailed, including reports of abduction, torture, and murder by Mugabe's party. Mugabe is also, however, shown to be responsible for the development of modern Zimbabwe, a nation with a flourishing economy, enough food, and free public education and health care. Significant attention is also paid to the ZAPU and ZANU parties, which have struggled for political strength and position. The black-and-white photos complement the text without being remarkable; the bibliography is extensive. --Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, Buffalo, NY
