During the course of a number of years of university study, I've read widely around Rwanda and find the country and its history deeply interesting. This book provides an extensive and broad-sweeping overview of events, with the content praised by Roméo Dallaire himself, UNAMIR Force Commander during the genocide. There is particular focus on the roles of Belgium, France and the US, with significant discussion of the UK with regards to Security Council action (or inaction). The author clearly approaches the subject matter sensitively and objectively, but the message at the end is clear. Highly recommended.
