At the Deep End tells the story of a founding member and leader of Zimbabwe’s main opposition party, the Movement for Democratic Change. Morgan Tsvangirai came to prominence as a political force in the late 1990s and became known as one of southern Africa's most influential statesmen. Over the next ten years he would be harassed, tortured, charged with treason and labelled a traitor, but he would also come to be globally regarded as a courageous and indefatigable symbol of resistance in the face of brutal repression. From teenage mine worker to trade union leader to Prime Minister of Zimbabwe in a coalition government, his autobiography traces Tsvangirai’s political development and activism, laying bare the challenges and frustrations of his political life, up to and including the power-sharing agreements with President Robert Mugabe.
