Résumé : This paper, the 21st issue of an edition of books and paper reviews on the knowledge of three countries of former Belgian Africa (DR Congo, Rwanda, and Burundi), covers the period 1993-2008. A short text for each reference points out the facts or ideas that are useful for geographers. The paper is composed of eleven sections. The most important are coping with the natural environment, health geography, population geography, history (including recent events), social and economic life in traditional and modern rural areas, informal economy, and urban geography. During the last sixteen years, conditions for field researches have become particularly difficult because of the warfare in the eastern part of the region and because of the economic collapse.
