Publisher Comments:

? Season of Blood was awarded Britain?s prestigious Orwell Prize for the best political book of 1995 ? Fergal Keane is the recipient of the 1995 Amnesty International Award for Best International Television Documentary. In 1994 he was named Sony Reporter of the Year at the New York Festival of Radio. When Rwandan president Habyarimana?s jet was shot down in April 1994, the country erupted into a hundred-day orgy of killing which left up to one million dead. Now, following the lines of blood and history, Fergal Keane takes us right along with him on a journey through the holocaust that preempted our television screens. Season of Blood is a veteran Africanist?s deeply personal and elucidating account of ordinary people caught in a nightmare of manipulation and massacre?an encounter with unimaginable evil. Contradicting the popular assumption that the genocide erupted as a result of tribal tensions, Keane demonstrates how a power-hungry clique actually planned the massacres far in advance through a systematic campaign of brainwashing and propaganda delivered with a precision not seen since Nazi Germany. Harrowing, searching, and tender, this overpowering narrative asks profound human questions for which we have no answers.

Synopsis:

Fergal Keane was the reporter for the BBC's "Panorama" television documentary on Rwanda. This book, by Keane, is an account of the history of the country, including the colonial period, and an analysis of what led to one of the greatest human tragedies of the century.

Synopsis:

An award-winning journalist goes beyond the headlines to reveal the real story of Rwanda's devastating genocide. Fergal Keane recounts how ordinary people were caught in a nightmare of manipulation and massacre an encounter with unimaginable evil. Released in hardcover by Viking, "Season of Blood" was awarded Britain's prestigious Orwell Prize for the best political book of 1995.

Fergal Keane is one of those journalists who has represented the 1994 war in Rwanda objectively. He has given the readers a chance to know both sides of the story. the Rwanda conflict has been portrayed in a loopsided way, but Keane's book has clears that, and presents to the readers the role and responsibilities of all parties to the conflict and the stakeholders.This is a very well written book that we ought to take lessons from.
