5 Reviews
In 1994 a small elite chose genocide to keep power in Rwanda. They used state resources and authority to incite - or force - tens of thousands of Rwandans to kill the Tutsi minority. Within one hundred days, they slaughtered more than half a million people, three quarters of the Tutsi of Rwanda. The major international actors, France, the U.S., Belgium, and the U.N., failed to head the warnings of coming disaster and refused to recognize the genocide when it began. They withdraw the troops that could have saved lives and made little protest against the genocide, last condemnation lead to calls for action.

Although reasonably well versed with the subject, the grimness can't help but get to you. It's a supremely difficult document to get through; masterful but relentless. It's page after page of rigorous, painstaking examination of terror and indifference. A seminal document if ever there was one. Read full review
