Beschreibung

Testimony and photographs from the Rwandan genocide, providing a rare look at both perpetrators and survivors.

Portrait

Photographer Robert Lyons is the author of two notable books on Africa. Another Africa is an exploration, with writer Chinua Achebe, of the real Africa behind the stereotypes commonly held by Westerners; Egyptian Time is a collection of photographs of Egypt and its people, accompanied by Egyptian writer Naguib Mahfouz's short story "The Cradle." Scott Straus is Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is the author of several books on Africa and violence, including The Order of Genocide: Race, Power, and War in Rwanda, and is the translator of Jean-Pierre Chretien's The Great Lakes of Africa: Two Thousand Years of History. Formerly a Nairobi-based journalist, he was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for his 1996 reporting on the war in Congo.

Pressestimmen

" Intimate Enemy is primarily composed of duotone photographs of the Hutu murderers of the Tutsi in Rwanda, now serving prison sentences. Photographer Lyons (Another Africa, with Chinua Achebe) shows seemingly "normal" individuals, with little or no malice in their faces. This aspect of everyday ordinariness staggers the mind: these people include teachers, businessmen, a plumber, farmers, an accountant, etc., who committed horrific crimes. Most confessed to killing, and few will be allowed to leave prison. There are images of Tutsi survivors as well. The accompanying text by former Nairobi-based journalist Straus (political science, Univ. of Wisconsin, Madison) is somber in tone, giving us a historical lesson few will forget. The interviews with these killers are straightforward and direct, lacking hyperbole and sensationalism." Library Journal "The testimony, preceded by only the briefest of explanations, is often chilling, and the photos are poignant in this stirring look at the Rwandan genocide." Booklist "While raw, unanalyzed interviews given by these Rwandans with Scott Straus, an expert on violence in Africa open the book, it's the striking black and white portraits taken by Robert Lyons which are so absorbing...Photography this poignant is a good reminder that a picture really can speak a thousand words. This is a hauntingly beautiful book." Embassy
