Linda Melvern, Conspiracy to murder : the Rwanda genocide (London ; New York : Verso, 2004) www.versobooks.com
Linda Melvern’s new book, the result of a decade of investigative work, is a damning indictment of almost all the key figures and the institutions involved. It reveals how the French military trained the killers, how the US is still withholding wiretap and satellite evidence that the genocide was about to begin, how the John Major government ignored vital warnings that the genocide was planned, how much Boutros Boutros-Ghali and the French government knew prior to the genocide and how the Security Council’s shameful decision to evacuate the peacekeepers came about. In addition to these official sources, the author draws on dozens of witness statements yet to be heard at the International Criminal Tribunal, at which she will be an expert witness, and a sixty-hour confession from the prime minister in the government that presided over the genocide never before made publicly available and currently locked in the safe of the chief prosecutors at the ICT court. Linda Melvern is a well-known and widely published investigative journalist. She is an Honorary Fellow of the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, and was a consultant to the Military One prosecution team at the International Criminal Tribunal on Rwanda. Her previous books include The Ultimate Crime, a secret history of the UN’s first fifty years, and A People Betrayed.

David Fridtjof Halaas & Andrew E. Masich, HALFBREED: The Remarkable True Story of George Bent ( De Capo Press, 2004) 480 pagesDenver Post Review 1 Feb 2004 by Sandra Dallas -- : Sand Creek Massacre forged vision Half-breed son of Colorado pioneer Bent fought with Indians and for peace The 1864 Sand Creek Massacre was one of the worst acts of genocide in American history. But 40 years after Col. John Chivington and his army of mostly Indian-haters and scoundrels attacked the peaceful Cheyenne and Arapaho camped in southeastern Colorado, aging Indian fighters were defending their scurrilous action. When George Bent, who survived the attack, tried to set the record straight, one Sand Creek participant claimed just a few Indians had been killed and "only one squaw and only one papoose in the lot." The unrepentant soldier called Bent a "cutthroat, and a thief, a liar and a scoundrel, but worst of all a halfbreed." Bent may not have been a liar, but in his lengthy life, this son of famed Indian trader William Bent and his Cheyenne wife, Owl Woman, was guilty of the other charges. A member of the treacherous Dog Soldier society, Bent was part of the campaign of revenge the Indians launched against whites in the wake of Sand Creek. "Halfbreed" is a well-researched biography of the most influential of William Bent's three sons. The others are older brother Robert, who helped their father run the family ranching and trading businesses, and their half-brother Charley, son of Owl Woman's sister, Yellow Woman. Charley, the most recalcitrant of the Bents, died young, fighting whites. Historians David Fridtjof Halaas and Andrew E. Masich re-create in great detail the turbulent years after the Civil War when Plains Indians like the Cheyenne fought for their survival against not only the white soldiers but greedy gold seekers and homesteaders and inept and dishonest Indian agents. This account is engrossing and authentic, although the writing suffers at times from repetition and even tediousness. Old William Bent, who with his brothers had opened Bent's Old Fort in the 1830s on the Arkansas River in Southern Colorado, knew his five half-Indian children were caught in a unique situation, accepted by neither the white nor the Indian worlds. In peace negotiations, he insisted on land claims for people with one Indian parent, but the government never granted them. So son George see-sawed from wealth to poverty. Educated in St. Louis and a Civil War veteran who fought for the Confederacy, George nonetheless joined the Dog Soldiers after witnessing the atrocities at Sand Creek. Charley Bent was captured by the soldiers and would have been killed if not for the courageous actions of Silas Soule, who was horrified at the carnage he saw at Sand Creek and forbade his company of soldiers from firing on the defenseless Indians. Soule arranged for Charley to be returned to his father. Later Soule, who spoke out about the murders and mutilations he'd seen at Sand Creek, was murdered by a Chivington supporter. Sand Creek turned George against the whites, and he went on the warpath with the Dog Soldiers, proving himself by his courage as well as his intelligence. When Indians captured messages written in English, they brought them to George to translate. And George explained that the supply of green paper the Indians ripped up was actually the white man's currency. But George, more than the other Indians, knew that it was futile to fight the whites, and he worked for peace, uniting warring factions at peace talks. It was a never-ending process because white negotiators could not always get the government to live up to treaty provisions, and hotbloods among the Indians went off on their own raids. George, born in 1843, lived to see the buffalo disappear and his kinsmen forced onto reservations. He died in 1918. Late in life, after conquering a drinking problem that sullied his name, he worked with anthropologists to preserve Cheyenne history, language and folkways. He provided information to George Bird Grinnell for his landmark book on the Plains Indian Wars, "The Fighting Cheyennes," and worked with George E. Hyde on a manuscript of his own life (not published until 1968). More than anything, George Bent wanted to be remembered as one who had lived through the years of Indian wars, an Indian who was not afraid to fight but who had worked for peace. Some 85 years after George's death, Halaas and Masich grant that wish.Denver Post 1 Feb 2004 Sandra Dallas is a Denver novelist whose latest book is titled "The Chili Queen."

Valentino, Assistant Professor of Government at Dartmouth College. finds that ethnic hatreds or discrimination, undemocratic systems of government, and dysfunctions in society play a much smaller role in mass killing and genocide than is commonly assumed. He shows that the impetus for mass killing usually originates from a relatively small group of powerful leaders and is often carried out without the active support of broader society. Mass killing, in his view, is a brutal political or military strategy designed to accomplish leaders’ most important objectives, counter threats to their power, and solve their most difficult problems. In order to capture the full scope of mass killing during the twentieth century, Valentino does not limit his analysis to violence directed against ethnic groups, or to the attempt to destroy victim groups as such, as do most previous studies of genocide. Rather, he defines mass killing broadly as the intentional killing of a massive number of noncombatants, using the criteria of 50,000 or more deaths within five years as a quantitative standard. Final Solutions focuses on three types of mass killing: communist mass killings like the ones carried out in the Soviet Union, China, and Cambodia; ethnic genocides as in Armenia, Nazi Germany, and Rwanda; and “counter-guerrilla” campaigns including the brutal civil war in Guatemala and the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. Valentino closes the book by arguing that attempts to prevent mass killing should focus on disarming and removing from power the leaders and small groups responsible for instigating and organizing the killing.
Haig Khatchadourian, Main Title: War, terrorism, genocide, and the quest for peace : contemporary problems in political ethics / Haig Khatchadourian. Published/Created: Lewiston, N.Y. : Edwin Mellen Press, 2004.
Description This collection brings together a number of papers that throw light on and engage timely and important ethical issues facing humanity in the 21st century: war, revolution, political assassination, terrorism and counter-terrorism, humanitarian military intervention, nuclear deterrence and the Missile Defense Shield; genocide, and the quest for peace. In addition to the ethical issues considered, the study also critically examines pertinent international legal aspects of these issues. Professor Khatchadourian’s theses and his arguments for them, usually grounded on human rights, are controversial. Far from diminishing the value of these essays, this constitutes their primary importance. Table of Contents Foreword by Ramon M. Lemos Author’s Preface 1. Self-Defense and the Just War 2.

Genocide is the focus of growing scholarly attention and controversy. Genocide, War Crimes and the West expands the debate by exploring the involvement of the USA and other liberal 'Western' democracies in activities supposedly restricted to totalitarian Europe and certain authoritarian Third World regimes? In the first Part, important analytical issues are considered, including the question of where responsibility for genocide resides, the variety of domestic and international institutional responses, and the moral basis for accusing Western countries of complicity. In the second Part, a large number of original case studies make clear how broadly conceived the subject ought to be; the wide range of state behaviours that can be criticised as constituting genocide, war crimes, or comparable mass violations of human rights; and the remedies that ought to be available. At a moment in history when terrorism has become a near universal focus of public attention, this volume shows why the actions of the West, both in centuries past and the Cold War era, have excited such widespread resentment and hatred around the world. 'In the names of millions of forgotten victims, from Wounded Knee to My Lai, a brilliant tribunal of scholars assail the himalayan hypocrisy of 'Western humanitarianism.' - Mike Davis, author of Late Victorian Holocausts 'This book documents one of the darkest chapters of recent history. It tells the story of what the 'First World', Western democracies, most prominently the United States, have committed mainly against countries and peoples in the South and in the former socialist world. It is the history of aggression, indiscriminate bombing, war crimes, and massacres since the 1970s, the story of Western complicity in genocide in the South and East, and worse, it is about genocide committed by democracies. This path-breaking book of 25 chapters finally fills a huge void; it carefully accounts for serious crimes others have shamefully avoided, omitted or denied.' - Christian P. Scherrer, Professor for Peace Studies at the Hiroshima Peace Institute, Japan; author of Genocide and Crisis
