As Miles Larmer writes in the foreword, Adventures in Zambian Politics is unlike any political memoir you have ever read.

It is ... A political history of Zambia from colonial times to the present. A revealing insider account of politics and government within a modern African state. A story about race in Africa. A chronicle of the rise and fall of two improbable political allies who wanted to change Zambian politics: Michael Sata, whose convoluted political career led him to become president in 2011, and the author, Sata?s vice president and, after Sata?s death, acting president of Zambia. Not least, it is a pleasure to read.

Guy Scott?s absorbing narrative of his career and Michael Sata?s in the chaotic world of African politics tells a uniquely Zambian story. But it is also a special contribution to our understanding of democracy and democratization across Africa.
