"Leave none to tell the story" : genocide in Rwanda by Alison Liebhafsky Des Forges( Book )

25 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and French and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1994 a small elite chose genocide to keep power in Rwanda. They used state resources and authority to incite (or force) tens of thousands of Rwandans to kill the Tutsi minority. Within one hundred days, they slaughtered more than half a million people, three quarters of the Tutsi of Rwanda. The major international actors, France, the U.S., Belgium, and the U.N., failed to head the warnings of coming disaster and refused to recognize the genocide when it began. They withdrew the troops that could have saved lives and made little protest against the genocide, lest condemnation lead to calls for action. This study, based on Rwandan government records, dissects the deceptive discourse of genocide and shows how ordinary administrative structures and practices were turned into mechanisms of murder. It describes opposition to the killing campaign and how it was broken. In the words of survivors, it relates how they resisted and escaped. Using diplomatic and court documents, the study details the transformation of international indifference into tardy criticism"--Back cover
Shielded from justice : police brutality and accountability in the United States by Allyson Collins( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Police brutality is one of the most serious, enduring and divisive human rights violations in the United States. Unjustified shootings by police, severe beatings, fatal chokings, and unnecessarily rough treatment of detainees occur in cities throughout the country. Despite promises of reform following high-profile incidents, abusive treatment by police officers persists because systems presumably designed to hold officers accountable instead, in practice, often allow them to escape punishment of any kind

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report finds significant shortcomings in the U.S. record, from the summary repatriation of Haitian boat people to the brutal treatment of prisoners.

Cutting off the serpent's head : tightening control in Tibet, 1994-1995 by Tibet Information Network( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Political repression in Tibet has increased sharply since 1994, and there are now more political prisoners in custody there than at any time in the last six years. The increased repression is the result of a new tibet policy announced in 1994 by the Chinese government that has led to tighter internal security in Tibet, longer sentences for political offenses, increased control over monasteries and nunneries, a demand for declarations of loyalty from thousands of Tibetans, intensified political education in schools, and more detentions. Over 230 Tibetans were detained for political offenses in 1995, a 50 percent increase over the year before, bringing the total now believed in custody to over 600
