“Let my book, Beyond the Storm, serve as a vaccination against the poison of power”, says Dr. Close. His book tells the story of the power of power to corrupt under the Mobutu reign in the Congo. It draws on his past as chief doctor of the Congolese Army and personal physician to Zaire’s President Mobutu Sese Seko. Beyond the Storm: Treating the Powerless and the Powerful in Mobutu’s Congo/Zaire will provide readers with a well-informed and in-depth look at past medical and political challenges that continue to resonate in today’s Democratic Republic of Congo (D.R.C.).
