Summary: Finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award and a New York Times Editor's Choice: "A milestone of foreign reporting and a chronicle of evil rarely rivaled since Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness ... [Gourevitch's] compelling account should be required reading." - Jonathan Randal, Washington Post Book World Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction. In April 1994, the Rwandan government called upon everyone in the Hutu majority to kill each member of the Tutsi minority, and over the next three months 800,000 Tutsis perished in the most unambiguous case of genocide since Hitler's war against the Jews. Philip Gourevitch's haunting work is an anatomy of the war in Rwanda, a vivid history of the tragedy's background, and an unforgettable account of its aftermath. One of the most acclaimed books of the year, this account will endure as a chilling document of our time.
