This is a shocking account of the disregard the French government under Mitterrand showed towards African lives. Well referenced, this describes how sections of the administration supported those responsible for the premeditated genocide of Rwandan Tutsis, despite being fully aware of the consequences. It is a terrible indictment of how personal cronyism, corruption and basic, petty Anglophobia still contribute to the direction of modern-day French foreign policy making.Another reviewer suggests that the author adopts an anti-French tone and to some extent this is evident, but in my opinion it would be difficult to document these events without doing so. I also observed problems with the consistency of the chronology in the earlier chapters.I highly recommend this book as it is, on the whole, well-written and the subject matter does not appear to be covered in similar detail in any other English language title.
