by Fergal Keane - £9.99 Penguin (1996)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780140247602 | ISBN 10: 0140247602
When President Habyarimana's jet was shot down in April 1994, Rwanda erupted into a hundred-day orgy of killing - which left up to a million dead.
Fergal Keane travelled through the country as the genocide was continuing, and his powerful analysis reveals the terrible truth behind the headlines.
"His beautifully written account is informed by grief and anger, and by some sound political analysis of the kind that is lacking from most media accounts of African tragedies. Keane makes it quite clear that this massacre was not an instance of tribal warfare, but a carefully planned genocide."
