Compelling history Oct. 25 2010
By SouthernHemisphere - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Ian's Smillie's new book, 'Blood on the Stone' is a compellingly written history of diamonds, colonialism and international trade, told from the point of view of one of the key architects of a system that attempted to staunch the flow of blood.

There are chapters providing detailed background on the governments and rebel movements of African states that splashed Western newspaper headlines for many years, and their links with the diamond supply chain. There are also chapters on the birth of modern diamond industry, and the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme established more than a century later to try to increase transparency and control of a product that had become implicated in money laundering, war and human rights abuses.

A mix of investigative journalism, lived experiences and passion for justice make this book a must-read for anyone involved in the jewellery industry or wanting to learn more about the past and present of the diamond supply chain. Highly recommended!
