Chapter Summary

This section of the book The Failure to Prevent Genocide in Rwanda: The Role of Bystanders presents a list of terms and concepts that occur in the book. No one can now doubt the extent of the tragedy in Rwanda and the fact that it could have been averted with a limited military commitment, but the major capitals of the West were hardly interested in military protection for the civilian population of that country. Nearly everyone concerned within these governments and within the United Nations' system thought of their interests first, and from a very narrow and selfish perspective at that.
