ABOUT Cooper Ross Gordon

Cooper Ross Gordon


"This unique autobiography describes the life of a white Zimbabwean growing up in Rhodesia, Zimbabwe-Rhodesia and subsequently after the attainment of independence on 18th April 1980, in Zimbabwe, and, thereafter, his move and settling in the UK. It provides a comfortable, quick read and is not meant to be an exhaustive family, historical or political account. Instead, it was born from a desire to reveal and elucidate the perspectives and truth of poignant issues in the country’s transition from a British colony to an independent, one-party state.
This book also grants the reader an insight into the build-up of political and economic anarchy that has plunged Zimbabwe into a financial abyss and transformed the ""bread-basket"" of Africa, a once flourishing country, into a land ravaged by hunger, disease and poverty. Captivating and highly recommended!
