Most interesting book I have read about the genocide. Explains the history in a way that makes sense to the lay person. Very interesting analysis of the importance of media and what it can do.

This is a great timeline of the events leading up to the Rwandan genocide in 1994. It explores the influence media had on the devastating events. It explores the mindset of the Hutus and the Tutsis giving an insight into the reasons behind their actions. This is the book that made me want to understand more about why people do the things they do. This book greatly influenced my decision to go into social work.

I really enjoyed learning about this part of a sad and difficult history, as well as cultural aspects. it is a complex and difficult situation and the author handles the issue of genocide and hate well, bringing a journalistic, storytelling aspect that lets the information unfold on its own.
