To understand the Genocide and other dramatic events of Rwanda's recent past, one must understand the history of the earlier realm. This book is an investigation of Rwanda's precolonial past particularly the Nyinginya dynasty in the 18th & 19th centuries and a demystifi cation of the colonial historiography of Rwanda. -œFor Historians-¦ the choice is clear. Only at their peril will they ignore Vansina's seminal contribution to our understanding of one of the most complex and controversial chapters in the history of the continent. There are a few books about Africa today I would qualify as a magnifi cent achievement. This is one of
them-. - Rene Lemarchand, African Aff airs
