About this product
- DescriptionThis book provides a juridical, sociopolitical history of the evolution of the 1994 Rwandan gecide. Over one million citizens were massacred in less than 100 days via a highly organized, efficiently executed gecide throughout the tiny country of Rwanda. While gecide is t a unique phemen in modern times, a gecide like Rwanda's is unique. Unlike most gecides, wherein a government plans and executes mass murder of a targeted portion of its population, asking merely that the majority population look the other way, or at most, provide harbor to the targeted population (ex: Germany), the Rwandan government relied heavily on the civilian population to t only politically support, but actively engage in the acts of gecide committed over the 100 days throughout the spring of 1994. This book seeks to understand why and how the Rwandan gecide occurred. It analyzes the colonial roots of modern Rwandan government and the development of the political state of exception created in Rwanda that ultimately allowed the sovereign to dehumanize the mirity Tutsi population and execute the most efficient gecide in modern history.
