Book description
The first biography of Rodrigo Duterte, the murderous, unpredictable president of the Philippines, whose war on drugs has seen thousands of people killed in cold blood.



Rodrigo Duterte was elected President of the Philippines in 2016. In his first 18 months in office, 12,000 people were murdered on the streets, gunned down by police officers and vigilante citizens - all with his encouragement.



Duterte is a serial womaniser and a self-confessed killer, who has called both Barack Obama and Pope Francis `sons of whores'. He is on record as saying he does not `give a shit' about human rights. Yet he is beloved of the 16.6 million Filipinos who voted for him, seen as vulgar but honest, a breath of fresh air, and an iconoclastic, anti-imperialist rebel.



In this revelatory biography, Channel 4 News' Asia Correspondent Jonathan Miller charts Duterte's rise, and shows how this fascinating, fearsome man can be seen as the embodiment of populism in our time.
