Description: Uganda, 1971. In the early days of Idi Amin's brutal dictatorship, Dr. Nicholas Garrigan, a Scotsman stationed in a remote rural outpost of Africa, is reluctantly drawn into service as Amin's personal physician. Eager to put his medical expertise to use, Garrigan turns a blind eye to the growing horrors of Amin's regime; by the time he recognizes it for what it is, he has become Amin's friend, incapable of confronting the torture and corruption all around him for fear of becoming Amin's prisoner.

Based closely on historical fact, Giles Foden's first novel is a mesmerizing account of the relationship between a cruel dictator and a flawed doctor and the world-shaking events that drew them into a thrilling, horrifying intimacy. In a strikingly original debut, Foden paints a portrait of Idi Amin unlike any we have ever seen -- Amin as a brilliant, intensely seductive rhetorician and leader, an irresistibly charismatic politician whose good humor concealed a monstrous heart and a capacity for some of the grossest tortures known to man. "The Last King Of Scotland" is a blackly comic vision of the depredation of a nation during the reign of one of the world's most ruinous tyrants -- a chilling rumination on power, charisma, and redemption.
