Articulating Betrayal

Articulating Betrayal

(p.72) Three Articulating Betrayal
A Socialist Peace?

Mike McGovern

University of Chicago Press

This chapter is devoted to the massacre in N’Zérékoré, the capital of Guinea’s forest region, in 1991. Whereas a political scientist might begin his research with a study of Guinean institutions, the book instead chooses to study the narratives used by a Guinean ethnolinguistic group to justify the killings. Over the course of the chapter, McGovern argues that the massacre committed by the Forestiers convinced them that ethnic cleansing might serve as a viable solution to their problems and shows how narrative played a significant role in fulfilling societal ambitions.

Keywords:   massacre, betrayal, N'Zérékoré, forest region, Forestiers, ethnic cleansing
