Sacrifice as Terror

The Rwandan Genocide of 1994

«'Stresses how history, anthropology, biology, and theology colluded in drawing seemingly ineradicable lines of difference between the Hutus and Tutsis and so generating this conflict ... an incisive study.'Journal for the Study of Media and Composite Cultures'Many studies seek to explain genocide through notions of ideology ... Taylor's achievement, which explains why the book is so frighteningly compelling, is to inject in to these discussions a human element. ... This is a valuable addition to the literature on Rwanda and on genocide in general, for it highlights neglected aspects of human behaviour, aspects that are often not accessible to those who rely on documents or the traditional accoutrements of scholarship. Taylor has demonstrated the value of fieldwork, oral history, and of anthropological enquiry to bring out the long-standing cultural stereo-types, practices and beliefs that underlie society, and that, in times of crisis, urgently require to be understood.'Pattern»
