About the Author

Jennie E. Burnet is assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Louisville. Her research focuses on women's roles in peace-building and democratization and on the long-term consequences of gender-based violence in conflict.


"A profoundly empathetic and comprehensive narrative that goes to the bottom of Rwandans' everyday struggles triggered by a contextual and inevitable urge to face their own violent past." -Aloys Habimana, Rwandan human rights lawyer

"The stories of life in postgenocide Rwanda presented in this book are deeply touching and challenge the dominant discourse that portrays Rwanda as a simple story of successful postconflict rebuilding. This book is essential reading for anyone with interest in Rwanda and in the legacies of violence, gender, society, memory, and transitional justice." -Timothy Longman, Boston University

"The most important contribution of this fine study is Burnet's conceptual breakthrough exploring the role of 'amplified silence.' Where the power of official discourse prevents many from mourning their losses, such silences speak loudly to those aware of them." -Catharine Newbury, Smith College

"Burnet presents a thoroughly intersectional analysis of the ways in which peoples' lives are shaped by gender, ethnicity and class as interlocking systems of oppression." -Women's Review of Books
