Up to one million people were killed in a planned public and political campaign. In the face of indisputable evidence, the Security Council of the United Nations failed to respond.In this classic of investigative journalism, Linda Melvern tells the compelling story of what happened.

She holds governments to account, showing how individuals could have prevented what was happening and didnt do so. The book also reveals the unrecognised heroism of those who stayed on during the genocide, volunteer peacekeepers and those who ran emergency medical care.This new edition examines the ongoing impact of the 1948 Genocide Convention and the shock waves Rwanda caused around the world.

Based on fresh interviews with key players and newly-released documents, A People Betrayed is a shocking indictment of the way Rwanda is and was forgotten and how today it is remembered in the West.
