Dancing in the Glory of Monsters: The Collapse of the Congo and the Great War of Africa tells the story of this misunderstood and overlooked conflict through the experiences of those who engineered and perpetrated it. He spoke with key architects of the war that became as great a disaster as—and was a direct consequence of—the genocide in Rwanda.
