- Hostile to Democracy: The Movement System and Political Repression
in Uganda. New York: Human Rights Watch, 1999.
This book was written and published by the Human Rights Watch, which
is a non-government organization that helps oppressed people around

history, politics, leadership, and NGO involvement in Uganda, it is
biased against the Ugandan leadership for its crimes against humanity.
The book ends with a chapter encouraging involvement in Uganda in order
to help advocate human rights.
