Summary "Genocide in Rwanda shows the human face of history, giving a personal context of events leading up to and extending through the genocide. Contributors include genocide survivors, Rwandan journalists, academics, human rights activists, members of the former and present Rwandan governments, officers of the Rwandan Patriotic Army, and United Nations experts. The testimony of people who were there is balanced with historical and political analysis. The views of the genocidal architects are presented through first-time translations of hate radio broadcasts transmitted from Zaire by the former government in exile. Also presented in a concise interpretation of legal issues involved in prosecuting the authors of the genocide, along with a dialogue on the role of the United Nations and the international community in Rwanda."
"Genocide in Rwanda: A Collective Memory is intended for general readers interested in analysis of the events in Rwanda, the role of ethnicity and politics in Africa, and the related activities of the United Nations and the international community. It is also for those concerned with human rights and humanitarian action. At first hand, this book reveals the thoughts and feelings of people who suffered unimaginable barbarity while the world watched in horror - and did nothing."--BOOK JACKET
