  • "The Shallow Graves of Rwanda is the personal account of the UN Secretary-General's Special Representative in Rwanda in the mid 1990s. Shaharyar M. Khan's tenure began in the immediate aftermath of the downing of President Habarimana's plane on 6 April 1994 and the massacres that followed. Khan details his encounters with the region's leading actors - Rwanda's soldiers and politicians, victims and survivors, as well as some of the perpetrators of the massacres. He also recounts how he dealt with people involved in international relief and humanitarian relief efforts, trying to revive the stricken villages and towns and tackle the floods of refugees and orphaned children." "Setting everyday events in Rwanda against the backdrop of international politics, The Shallow Graves of Rwanda shows how the UN works on the ground and at headquarters and explores the problems of peacekeeping. The author backs up his conclusions on the phenomenon and nature of genocide with impressive and unique documentary evidence and shows how the lessons of Rwanda can provide valuable guidance for the future." "Shaharyar M. Khan gives the first account of the crisis in Rwanda by a major player charged with containing and resolving the disaster. The result is a powerful and crucial testament to one of the most shameful events of modern times. The compelling narrative and chilling detail add to the work's enormous value as a historical document."--BOOK JACKET
