About the Author

Peter Eichstaedt is a veteran journalist and author dedicated revealing the stories behind human rights abuses. Formerly senior editor for Uganda Radio Network and Africa editor for the Institute of War and Peace in Reporting in The Hague, Eichstaedt traveled extensively in Africa to cover war crimes and trials. He won the 2010 Colorado Book Award for history for his book First Kill Your Family: Child Soldiers of Uganda and the Lord's Resistance Army and is the author of If You Poison Us: Uranium and Native Americans and Pirate State: Inside Somalia's Terrorism at Sea. He makes his home base near Denver, Colorado, and is currently on assignment in Kabul, Afghanistan.


"A powerful and long-overdue expose of greed and violence in the battle over Africa's mineral wealth. . . . A harrowing and important work that shows yet again that far-flung conflicts touch closer to home that we may imagine."--Greg Campbell, author of Blood Diamonds: Tracing the Deadly Path of the World's Most Precious Stones
"An exceptional book that opens up the complicated and brutal reality of life in the Democratic Republic of Congo. By explaining and connecting the violence that occurs on the ground to the products it facilitates, Eichstaedt serves up a devastating global insight into the perpetuation of violence in the DRC." --Sarnata Reynolds, Amnesty International USA
"Eichstaedt provides counterpoint and a glimmer of hope in the form of possible reforms and legislations that could restore order to a devastated region."--Publishers Weekly
