Season of Blood : A Rwandan Journey Paperback

4 out of 5 (1 rating)


When President Habyarimana's jet was shot down in April 1994, Rwanda erupted into a hundred-day orgy of killing - which left up to a million dead.

Fergal Keane travelled through the country as the genocide was continuing, and his powerful analysis reveals the terrible truth behind the headlines. 'A tender, angry account...As well as being a scathing indictment - Keane says the genocide inflicted on the Tutsis was planned well in advance by Hutu leaders - this is a graphic view of news-gathering in extremis.

It deserves to become a classic' - "Independent".

Review by

Superb. Present from Valentina which left me longing for more political/journalistic literature about the wounds of our world in remote places.Two questions: what were the political consequences of Burundi's president being also killed when both presidents' plane was shot down? What was the role of the Twa?
