People lived in enclosures dispersed across the hillside.

Africa and the Diaspora: History, Politics, Culture. Much of A Hill among a Thousand was originally in French before the 1994 genocide. The University of Wisconsin Press and Royal Museum for Central Africa, 2005. The book deserves an honored place in academic libraries around the world, and especially as a well-thumbed volume on the bookshelves of any English or French speaker seeking to assist Rwandan development. As for academics, the book sets a high standard for how to write about the social world of Africa. Rwandan society as a result is center stage in the book, rather than the genocide.

Sometimes called “the land of a thousand hills,” Rwanda has witnessed upheavals of massive proportions. Looking at the people of one hill community, Danielle de Lame shows how they coped with unprecedented change during the twilight years of Rwanda’s Second Republic. In an insightful, meticulously researched study focusing on the late 1980s and early 1990s, de Lame situates this rural community, located at the heart of the Kibuye prefecture, within the larger context of Rwandan history and society. In this country without villages, it is the networks of kinship, administration, and commerce that create complex patterns of solidarity and dependency. De Lame reveals these patterns in all their intricacy, and her treatment of the region and its rhythms speaks at the same time to the economics of production, the inequalities of power, and the dynamics of social transformation. The ultimate goal of her work is to restore the individuality of the people she studies, “making them neither executioners nor victims but men and women fashioning their own destiny, day after day.”Copublished with the Royal Museum for Central AfricaWisconsin edition not for sale in Europe.
