2 Alison Des Forges's Leave None to Tell the Story: Genocide in Rwanda(New York: Human Rights Watch, 1999) gives the most comprehensive account of the mechanics of the genocide. This detailed narrative on the events prior to and during the genocide is invaluable for those who wish to understand how so many could be killed in such a systematic and rapid fashion. The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda has also been central in identifying those individuals responsible for the killingsGoogle Scholar.

On France's responsibility for the genocide, especially its support of the Rwandan government, see Monique Mas, Paris-Kigali, 1990–1994: lunettes coloniales, politique du sabre et onction humanitaire pour un génocide Afrique (Paris: l'Har-mattan, 1999). For an early condemnation of France's role see Francois-Xavier Verschave, Complicité de génocide: la politique de la France au Rwanda(Paris:Editions Découverte, 1994).
