In this highly authoritative book--the first of its kind--Kingsley Moghalu provides an engrossing account and analysis of the international political brinksmanship embedded in the quest for justice for Rwanda's genocide. Moghalu takes us behind the scenes to the political and strategic factors that shape a path-breaking war crimes tribunal and demonstrates why the trials at Arusha, like Nuremberg, Tokyo and the Hague, are more than just prosecutions of culprits, but also politics by other means.
