This is the worst book ever written about Rwanda.It is very typical of Belgian colonial propaganda aimed at misleading and misinforming the public.This was indeed Belgian colonial administration's scheme of using scholars like Jan Vansina and his colleagues who were on Belgian colonial adminisrtration's official payroll. In 1920 Minister Jules Renkins in his brief to catholic priests in the Congo said this: " YOUR DUTY IS TO MAKE THE BLACK MAN FORGET HIS ANCESTORS...MAKE OUR SAVAGES LOSE INTEREST IN THE WEALTH OF THEIR NATION." This book does exactly what Minister Renkins ordered: Make Rwandans forget their ancestors.
