To understand the genocide and other dramatic events of Rwanda s recent past, one must understand the history of the earlier realm.

He describes the genesis of the Hutu and Tutsi identities, their growing social and political differences, their bitter feuds, revolts, and massacres, and the relevance of this dramatic history to the post-genocide Rwanda of today.2001 French edition, Katharla Publishers
