Well written with some truly haunting sections I learnt a few things I'd never heard of before such as Shell's role in human rights abuses However I think the message and content of the book were diminished by the style in which it was approached Perhaps if I had known going in that this was memoir and one man's ponderings on the Holocaust and other examples of 'desk killers' I would have responded better but as it was I grew frustrated with the endless digressions into where the author was what he atewhere he went travelling etc It felt like the perpetrators the desk killers and even the victims of their atrocities were sometimes an afterthought and sometimes lost in all the musings I did end up skimming to get to the uotes and information which was incredibly interesting and heartbreaking I think this book could have been so much powerful if it had been brutally edited

I You We ThemA number of specific cases moving from the brutalities of Empire to the scorched gas fields of the Niger Delta from the industrial complex of Auschwitz to the empty sites of the Bosnian genocide bearing witness recording and attempting to understandIt is a synthesis of history reportage and memoir a sustained meditation on the nature of responsibility and injustice and a book that will change the way we think about our past present and futur. This book is disturbing on every level I was introduced to facts of the Holocaust corporate collusion and historical genocides that I had not been aware of Therein lies the value in this bookI found that when the author meandered off to focus on his own life briefly it wasn't a distraction as some critics have mentioned It was necessary so that when we returned to his discussion or exploration of the desk killer the title of the book came into play I found I could identify with each of the pronouns used in the title That's powerful The contrast is insightful I still do not have a clear understanding of why human beings are capable of crimes against Humanity and I believe the writer struggles with that as well In exploring it in this book he has done well in exposing our ability for cruelty and how similar and capable we are to those we would regard as monsters
