In 1994, Rwanda’s gruesome neighbor-on-neighbor genocide stunned the world. The aftermath of that societal meltdown is a major surprise: The East African sovereign state is now a safe, stable nation successfully striving to lift its people out of poverty. Patricia Crisafulli and Andrea Redmond report that former exile Paul Kagame, who is now president of Rwanda, single-handedly put his nation on the path to prosperity. While their writing can be a little cloying at times, the two authors provide colorful details that make a compelling case for Kagame’s heroism. getAbstract recommends their study to international businesspeople, investors, academicians, NGOs and policy makers.
