Rwanda's Rebirth and the Man Who Dreamed It. In the tradition of Ishmael Beah's bestselling "A Long Way Gone" and Greg Mortenson's "Three Cups of Tea," this book recounts the thrilling and uplifting tale of Rwandan President Kagame, who defied the odds to lift himself and his country out of misery toward a more promising future.
In 1994, the world stood idly by as Rwanda was devastated by the most horrifying genocide since the Holocaust. Now this tiny, land-locked nation stands poised to stun the world again--but in a very different way. Killers and survi-vors have embarked on a breathtaking path toward reconciliation, and Rwanda has become one of the most promising countries in the developing world. How did this happen?
In A "Thousand Hills," bestselling author Stephen Kinzer tells the dramatic story of Paul Kagame, whose rebel army stopped the genocide and whose government has turned Rwanda into a new star of Africa. Kagame grew up as a wretched refugee, shaped one of the most audacious covert operations in the history of clandestine warfare, and then emerged as a visionary leader with radical ideas about how poor countries can climb out of their misery. Whether his experiment can succeed is a question that has begun to fascinate people across Africa and beyond.
