Summary note
  • "This book analyzes the hundred year development of the 'state of exception' in Rwanda, a political theory developed and expanded by Foucault, Agamben, and others. It analyzes Hutu regime propaganda utilized to dehumanize the Tutsi population and how state action created a setting for genocide to become an appropriate reaction to political threats."--Publisher.
