About this product
- DescriptionThe massacre of 1 million Rwandan Tutsis by ethnic Hutus in 1994 has become a symbol of the international community's helplessness in the face of human rights atrocities. It is assumed that the West was well-intentioned, but ultimately ineffectual. But, as Andrew Wallis reveals in this shocking book, one country - France - was secretly providing military, financial and diplomatic support to the gecidaires all along. Based on new interviews with key players and eye-witnesses, and previously unreleased documents, Wallis' book tells a story which many have suspected, but never seen set out before. France, Wallis discovers, was keen to defend its influence in Africa, even if it meant complicity in gecide, for as French President Francois Mitterrand once said: in countries like that, gecide is t so important . Wallis' riveting expose of the French role in one of the darkest chapters of human history will provoke furious debate, denials, and outrage.
