For anybody interested in world events, the human condition, the nature and workings of evil, etc, I would wholeheartedly (and with a heavy heart) recommend Shake Hands with the Devil by Romeo Dallaire. It is a roughly 500 page read on the UN Commander’s experience of the genocide in Rwanda, focussing on the role that the UN played (or “didn’t play” or “could have played”) in attempting to prevent the genocide.

Gird up your loins…
