The subject of the book is most interesting however it is a pity that detail is poor in several places and it focuses too narrowly in a particular geographic area but the facts that are given give a good insight into the difficulties of trying to control such a trade in illicit precious stones from wherever they may be mined. A noble attempt that goes some way towards giving those people who are unaware of the trials and tribulations the local populace suffer to line the pockets of the warlords.

A sequel of a broader perspective would be invaluable, particularly as to how the legitimate companies trading such diamonds manage to escape punishment and to how the challenges of controlling the trade are developing

If you ever wondered exactly what conflict diamonds are, then this is the book for you.
Harrowingly illustrating the utter brutality and senseless nature of a war without any boundaries or conscience, Blood Diamonds is written more like a gripping novel - but is sadly non-fiction.
Read it and make your own mind up - you will have an opinion.

Format: Paperback
Bought this book after watching the film and was not disappointed by it. A good book to give you an inside on diamonds trade and all the conflicts and killings behind it.
I reckon that with this book I will save a few grant cause I will definitely never buy a diamond and thus perpetuate this dirty and obscure business and if any woman actually asks me for a diamond I'll just point at the book and suggest a reading! If she afertwards still wants a diamond then pointing at door might be the best solution!! hehehe

gripping, proves the attitude of the governments in the 1st world have very little regard to the people in the 3rd world until it hurts them and then they get involved
