The ignorant bystander?

Britain and the Rwandan genocide of 1994

Dean J. White

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Based on a PhD thesis that won the British International History Group thesis prize 2013 - described as excellent by the judges
  • One of few books to give an insight into the foreign policy of the John Major government
  • The only book to provide a comprehensive review of the British response to the genocide
  • Uses the detailed case study of Rwanda to explore British responses to overseas crises more generally (including Libya and Syria); particularly useful to students looking to understand practical foreign policy making
