This article begins with an account of significant events and socio-political relationships in the history of Rwanda, leading to mass murder and genocide in 1994. An explanation is then offered of these crimes, based on an analysis of certain ecological, economic, cultural and political factors specific to Rwanda, but shared to an important extent by much of East Africa.
