For more than a decade, Jacques Pauw has traversed his native continent in pursuit of warlords and drug traffickers, child soldiers and charlatans, adventure and anarchy. What he found was a rich array of personalities and a panoply of stories, ranging from the profoundly tragic to the intensely personal. Pauw’s stories range from South Africa to Rwanda, from Sierra Leone and the Sudan to Mozambique. Readers are taken behind the scenes of sensational news reports with compassion, humour and occasional cynicism and emerge in the knowledge that, even if it’s true that there is nothing new out of Africa, the writer has found fresh ways to present time-honoured tales of love, life, misery and mortality.
Jacques Pauw moved into the electronic media in 1994 after having cut his teeth on investigative journalism in print. A founder member of Vrye Weekblad, he lifted the veil on dirty tricks funded and authorized by the apartheid government. He has published two books on the subject: In the Heart of the Whore and Into the Heart of Darkness. Pauw has travelled the length and breadth of Africa to bring television viewers stories about conflict, corruption and human rights abuses. Currently executive producer of the hard-hitting weekly television series Special Assignment, he has won numerous South African and international journalism awards, twice being named CNN's African Journalist of the Year and also winning the Vodacom Journalist of the Year award.

this book is a rare opportunity to learn about human beings - ourselves and what we are capable of whether we like it or not

This is a truly amazing book - Pauw has travelled and investigated and lived in a way that can teach for those of us who will never have the courage to do so in quality and in quantity. he has seen the capacity of humanity - and has provided us with the privilege of seeing and learning. what a powerful book this is.

This is not a book for the faint hearted. Pauw does indeed "dance with devils". It cannot leave you untouched as it describes the human tragedy behind the atrocities committed in Rwanda and the apartheid regime in South Africa in grim detail. Excellent work from one of, if not the best, investigative journalist in South Africa. Highly recommended. Should be read by every budding journo.
Wow brilliant writing

Jacques Pauw knows how to craft a page turner. This book about the underbelly of African politics, criminals, reformers, do gooders, faith healers - the good & bad, the vivid rich mosaic of this continent. He writes with sharp insight and is honest about himself and the topic he reports on. The chapter titles are wonderful.
A devilish good read

For people interested in the dark side of humanity this is a good book. I love this kind of in depth search for why things are like they are.
The Evil that Men Do........
24 March 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
An extremely interesting book. Journalist Jacques Pauw takes you down the dark pathways that men so often follow. One of the those books that I almost feel like I am part of, because the author pulls you in, hook, line and sinker.
