9781463425944: Rape, Loot & Murder: Liberian Civil War: A Journalist's Photo Diary

This photo documentary book on Liberia's civil war, the first of its kind, no doubt serves as a witness to man's vicious inhumanity to his kind. It all began in December 1989 with a small band of rebels under the command of the National Patriotic Front of Liberia leader, Charles Taylor seizing a few towns and villages along the Liberian-Ivorian border in the north. As the NPFL and its splinter group, INPFL led by Gen. Prince Johnson advanced on the capital, Monrovia, Liberian Government troops crumbled, thereby carrying out targeted killings of civilians while fighting for their survival. As years went by, more warring factions emerged, some with tribal and religious undertones claiming to redeem the country. But in reality, all of the warring factions, (NPFL, INPFL, ULIMO-J, ULIMO-K, LPC, AFL, NRC, CRC, LDF) fought to seize political power as well as exploit the country's mineral resources like gold and diamond. In the process, no lives were spared as depicted in this book; babies, woman and elderly became perfect targets due to their vulnerability. There were unimaginable destruction and human suffering throughout the entire country and in some instances, scores of factions staged genocides against civilians in their fight for power. The irony though is that the evidence of the crimes in Liberia could have disappeared if not for the lenses of an eye witness, documentarian and journalist, James Kokulo Fasuekoi, who risked his life to capture these images for posterity.
