Tracy KidderThough far from Panglossian, Life after Violence is a hopeful book, one that makes a strong case for what would seem an elementary notion: If you want to launch a long-term effort to improve a society, you ought to know something about it. Burundians were not consulted when Europeans claimed them and their land more than a century ago, and they haven't been consulted much since, not by their own leaders or by international experts. In this fascinating and potentially useful book, the citizens of a small, desperately impoverished country have for once been granted that fundamental human right: They have been allowed to speak their minds.
