Abstract:This annotated bibliography is a guide to published material about the dictator Idi Amin and Uganda during the Idi Amin period. The book covers the period of Amin's reign (1971-1979). It cites mainly scholarly, research-level works in English available in libraries in North America. The book starts with a survey of Idi Amin's reign. The 406 works cited are published between 1967 and 1991 and include periodical articles, books, individual chapters within edited books, government publications, videotapes, audiotapes, doctoral dissertations, and master's theses. Excluded are newspaper articles, fiction, encyclopedias, yearbooks, and other standard handbooks, with the exception of the annual handbook 'Africa Contemporary Record' and the relevant mass media translation series of the Joint Publications Research Service, such as 'Translations on sub-Saharan Africa', which were selectively scanned for material on Amin and Uganda. The bibliography is arranged in chronological periods covering the early years of the regime (1971-1975), the later years of the regime (1976-1979), the regime as a whole (1971-1979), and Amin in exile. Each of the year-span sections is divided into 'chapters' covering specific events. There is an author index, a title index and a subject index.
