Description

We are Progress and the New Age. Nothing can stand in our way.'When Oxford-educated Emperor Seth succeeds to the throne of the African state of Azania, he has a tough job on his hands. His subjects are ill-informed and unruly, and corruption, double-dealing and bloodshed are rife. However, with the aid if Minister of Modernization Basil Seal, Seth plans to introduce his people to the civilized ways of the west - but will it be as simple as that?

Author Biography

Evelyn Waugh (1903-1966) was born in London and educated at Oxford. He quickly established a reputation with such social satirical novels as Decline and Fall, Vile Bodies and Scoop. Waugh became a Catholic in 1930, and his later books display a more serious attitude, as seen in the religious theme of Brideshead Revisited, a nostalgic evocation of student days at Oxford. His diaries were published in 1976, and his letters in 1980.
