The book is about the many war crimes that have taken place in Somalia in the name of peace, development, religion and reconciliation. It reveals who gained from the spoils of war and who paid the price.War Crimes by Rasna Warah is an insightful examination of why a failed state colluded in its own destruction and why the international community did little to stop it.
