Summary
Investigates the story of the small demonstration on May 27, 1977, that led to the massacre of thousands by the ruling MPLA party, in fear of a coup d'état. Based on interviews with witnesses, this book challenges assumptions about the MPLA, former President Agostinho Neto, political opposition in Angola, and Cuban involvement in the country
