Description and Biographies

Subtitle: Tracing the Deadly Path of the World’s Most Precious Stones

     The 2006 movie Blood Diamonds with Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Connelly, was based on this book.
     Discover the international diamond trail of brutality, horror and profit... a story of global consequences!
     A “conflict diamond” is one that is mined illegally by groups trying to overthrow the legitimate governments of certain countries. The profits from these stolen mines are used to continue funding for their brutal, murderous military actions.
     This is one of these gripping stories of blood diamonds by Greg Campbell.
     In the 90s, the country of Sierra Leone was under terrible civil war between the legitimate government and the Revolutionary United Front (RUF) a group that had no real ideology other than takeover of the government, money, and according to Campbell, the diamond fields of the country. They did so in a horribly violent way.
     Award-winning journalist Greg Campbell traces the deadly trail of these diamonds and the repercussions felt far beyond the poor and war-ridden country of Sierra Leone.
    
     New York Times: “Mr. Campbell tells this complex tale from a personal, feet-on-the ground perspective....He reminds us that there is no longer any such thing as an isolated conflict that governments and corporations can ignore with impunity.”
     Washington Times: “A vivid, hair-raising tale of brutal proportions that outdistances any fictional tale of derring-do.”
     AudioFile: “Though he steps into the vocal cadence of African leaders, Tom Weiner wisely doesn’t overdramatize. His pace, clarity, and compelling tone work to keep listener attention throughout a detailed explanation of how the diamond market works."
