This book challenges the widely held belief that the mass killing unleashed by the aerial assassination of President Juvenal Habyarimana was the outcome of a conscious strategy to annihilate Rwanda's Tutsi population that had been planned and organized in advance by Hutu extremists known as the Akazu. It is the first of its kind to fully deconstruct the dominant narrative of the circumstances leading up to, and during, the period defined as the Rwandan genocide. It questions the accepted wisdom of the events with a revisionist examination of the evidence. Highlighting suppressed evidence and weaving in new material, it aims to provide the most robust and academically credible investigation on the issue of the Rwandan genocide through an interrogation of all the claims made to support the thesis. It poses an alternative version of the events that took place in Rwanda before and during 1994. The author adopts a logical-historical approach, which aims to situate the killings within a historically specific context, drawing out a dynamic interplay between national and international actors to provide an empirically detailed and forthright investigation of the butchery of Rwanda's Tutsis and Hutus, and the perpetrators.
