"Eichstaedt provides counterpoint and a glimmer of hope in the form of possible reforms and legislations that could restore order to a devastated region."--Publishers Weekly "An exceptional book that opens up the complicated and brutal reality of life in the Democratic Republic of Congo. By explaining and connecting the violence that occurs on the ground to the products it facilitates, Eichstaedt serves up a devastating global insight into the perpetuation of violence in the DRC." --Sarnata Reynolds, Amnesty International USA "A powerful and long-overdue expose of greed and violence in the battle over Africa's mineral wealth. . . . A harrowing and important work that shows yet again that far-flung conflicts touch closer to home that we may imagine."--Greg Campbell, author of Blood Diamonds: Tracing the Deadly Path of the World's Most Precious Stones
