Summary
  • "In 1994, an interim government in Rwanda orchestrated one of the world's worst mass crimes: a hundred-day extermination campaign that took half a million lives. At the time, Rwanda's genocide went largely unnoticed by the outside world. Today there is growing interest in Rwanda, as many discover the horror that took place and seek to understand how and why violence of this character and magnitude could have happened in our time." "Intimate Enemy is a rare entree into the logic, language, and imagery of Rwanda's violence. The book presents perpetrator testimony and photographs of both perpetrators and survivors. The images and words are raw and unanalyzed; the reader is left to make sense of the killers and their would-be victims."
  • "Intimate Enemy challenges our assumptions about the genocide and those who perpetrated it. The book also provokes us to consider how to represent and imagine violence on the scale of Rwanda's."--BOOK JACKET
