    Any online search for ‘Rwanda genocide’ gives them a vastly disproportionate pride of place. Besides the five cited by Herman and Peterson, this rogue's gallery of American deniers also includes Keith Harmon Snow and Wayne Madsen, who will bitterly resent the authors for failing to invoke them in their book.   Presently, 64 per cent of parliamentarians in Rwanda are women.

Thus, many believe that, on the one hand, the uncertainty associated with an unstable political environment may reduce investment and the speed of economic development.

      Antecedents to Modern Rwanda: The Nyiginya Kingdom, by Jan Vansina. A must-read for understanding the political, economic, and social organization of pre-colonial Rwanda, and the harmful way that colonialism interacted with the extant social identities of “Hutu” and “Tutsi.”.   As an election looms, the politics of Rwanda become a lot nastier Progress and repression in Rwanda: Divisionists beware Mar 4th , from Print edition.

      Winner of the Bethwell A. Ogot Book Prize of the African Studies AssociationBetween and , the Catholic Church was Rwanda's most dominant social and religious institution. In recent years, the church has been critiqued for its perceived complicity in the ethnic discourse and political corruption that culminated with the genocide. Political opponents, journalists and ordinary citizens alike dare not voice dissent in Rwanda, as Anjan Sundaram's recent book Bad News carefully and persuasively documents. Kigali tells us not to worry because this movement is popular with the "majority". They say the West should mind its own business, leaving Rwandans to deal with Rwanda.
