From Hope to Horror: Diplomacy and the Making of the Rwanda Genocide
3/17/2020 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Chester Crocker, former Assistant Secretary of State for Africa, says Joyce Leader's book "is destined to become a definitive history of what what wrong, why, and when ... [and] belongs at the center of literature on this important episode in Africa's modern history." As deputy to the U.S. ambassador in Rwanda, Joyce Leader witnessed the tumultuous prelude to genocide—a period of political wrangling, human rights abuses, and many levels of ominous, ever-escalating violence. From Hope to Horror offers her insider’s account of the nation’s efforts to move toward democracy and peace and analyzes the challenges of conducting diplomacy in settings prone to—or engaged in—armed conflict. To be published by Potomac Books/University of Nebraska Press in March, in hardcover at $50 ($42.50 for DACOR members), with 440 pages, map, chronology and index.
While there is no charge for this event, it will feature a cash bar. Location: DACOR Bacon House, 1801 F Street, NW, Washington, DC 20006
