Product description

Review

""Justice on the Grass" is a compelling, precisely reported account that succeeds where few other books on the Rwandan massacres have: it puts a human face -- actually several human faces -- on a series of crimes and by so doing provides new haunting depth to what had previously been a shapeless, and often nameless, horror." -- Marie-Pierre Poulain, counsel, Avocats Sans Frontieres "Ten years after the genocide in Rwanda, the world still struggles to comprehend the horror. "Justice on the Grass" provides brilliant new insights into perpetrators' psyche and the challenges of rebuilding Rwanda's war-torn society. It is a must read for those seeking answers." -- Ambassador Nancy E. Soderberg ""Justice on the Grass" is an important addition to the growing literature on the worst genocide since the Holocaust. By following in beautifully etched detail the war crimes trial of three Rwandan journalists, Dina Temple-Raston has found new dimensions to the Rwandan tragedy and raised important questions about the role of the media in such events." -- Ambassador Richard C. Holbrooke "While the story of the Rwandan genocide as it happened has been told in black and white, the story of its aftermath requires a more subtle intelligence, and Temple-Raston identifies and exposes all the moral ambiguity of the current situation. Her characters are by turns vivid, engaging, and frightening, her narrative moving, strange, and sometimes wonderfully humorous. In telling the story of the notorious media trial, she shows us what it means for a small country and the world to grapple with the unspeakable, delineating the unlikely heroism of those who achieve dignity in the face of tragedy, the palpable evil of those who would undermine humanity, and the pathos of those who belatedly aspire to grace. This is both a gripping book about fundamental values and an important historical document." -- Andrew Solomon, author of "The Noonday Demon" "A beautifully crafted and deeply moving study of the Rwandan genocide and the unprecedented war crime trial of journalists that followed. Temple-Raston's enormously sophisticated description of that controversial trial, which raised profound and painful issues about freedom of the press, makes the book a memorable contribution to public discourse." -- Floyd Abrams, partner, Cahill Gordon & Reindel, LLP --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
