Reviews

During the 1990s, the tiny African country Rwanda descended into a devastating genocidal conflict. It has since not only recovered but flourished. In elegant prose and vivid detail, foreign correspondent Kinzer (All the Shah's Men) reconstructs Rwanda's unique history, focusing on the dramatic story of President Paul Kagame, whom he credits as the architect of Rwanda's rebirth. The reading by J. Paul Boehmer (Moby Dick) is not as robust as one might wish, but he smoothly moves the narrative along. A fascinating title giving a solid introduction to modern African history; recommended.-[Audio clip available through www.tantor.com.-Ed.]-R. Kent Rasmussen, Thousand Oaks, CA Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

"...tells a remarkable tale about a remarkable man." The Economist Saturday 23 August 2008 "Stephen Kinzer recreates the battles between the RPF and the Rwandan government forces in vivid detail." The National Thursday 10 July 2008
