Book Talk: "Killing Neighbors: Webs of Violence in Rwanda"

Killing Neighbors Book CoverJoin us on April 27, 2010, for a lecture by Dr. Lee Ann Fujii, Assistant Professor of Political Science at The George Washington University. Fuji will discuss her new book Killing Neighbors: Webs of Violence in Rwanda, which presents a new examination for the motives behind the Rwandan genocide. Fujii’s research focuses on individual behavior and actions as a major motivation for violence as opposed to ethnic intolerance. Fujii bases her arguments on extensive interviews in Rwandan prisons and two rural communities. These form the basis for her claim that mass participation in the genocide was not the result of ethnic antagonisms.

Please join us on April 27, 2010, at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library at 6:30 p.m. in the Social Sciences Division, Room 220 for this simulating lecture. For more information contact 202-727-1270
