In 2001, after a devastating war with Ethiopia, a huge debate erupted within Eritrea regarding government policy. This book revisits that debate through interviews with five critics - top government officials and former liberation movement leaders - shortly before they disappeared into the Eritrean gulag. As these conversations reveal, the speakers knew what was in store for them - arrest and indefinite detention. This book not only opens a critical window into that seminal moment, it also signals the persistent dream of a democratic future yet to be fulfilled.
