DESCRIPTION

Since the end of its genocidal civil war in 1994, Rwanda has embarked on an ambitious, and often controversial, process of reconstruction. Jean-Paul Kimonyo comprehensively analyzes that process in the political, military, socioeconomic, and cultural arenas.

Kimonyo combines the objectivity of a scholar with the front-row perspective of a participant to provide an unparalleled analysis of the ups and downs of Rwanda's transformation. Drawing extensively on primary sources and grounding his study in historical context, he traces and analyzes the states of reconstruction as they have continued to unfold since the election of Paul Kagame to the presidency.
