Read full description of the books:



This book is a "must-read" for anyone interested in the Rwandan genocide or genocide studies more generally. The author takes on more than one big question in this study of the political and social mechanisms that account for the Rwandan genocide. First, he makes a strong functionalist argument for the genocide in contrast to the more common intentionalist view. In other words, he demonstrates that the genocide could have occurred as it did even if no firm decision to engage in genocide was taken by the hardliners in advance of the assassination of the president. Ironically, this makes the tragically negligent response of the international community seem that much worse, since a firm international commitment to stabilize the highly insecure situation may well have given the upper hand to the moderates (who were otherwise quickly defeated) and stifled the insecurity the drove the genocidal dynamic. Second, he makes an important contribution to existing literature on the motivations of genocidaires. In the Rwandan case, the genocide proceeded rapidly by activating a substantial portion of adult men of the country, and Strauss tests a series of hypotheses about how that happened through interviews of perpetrators. His findings do not support the generalized assumption of pre-existing murderous hatred against all Tutsis by all Hutu (a familiar argument that is akin to Goldhagen's argument about Germany prior to the Holocaust), but adds to what we know about "ordinary men" in important (and disconcerting) ways.
