9781558764699: Darfur: The Long Road to Disaster

Images of the genocide in Darfur have shocked the Western world: Upwards of 300,000 of its inhabitants have died, and another 2.5 million have become refugees. Those affected by the violence are estimated at almost 4 million, 700,000 of whom are now beyond the reach of humanitarian assistance. These are staggering numbers, and the fractious insurgent groups involved--Islamist Arab tribal militias against Christian black Africans and other militias made up of deserters of the Chad Army--were and still are supported to kill, rob, and terrorize by the governments of the neighboring states of the Sudan, Chad, and Libya. These are the consequences of a decades-long war, as J. Millard Burr and Robert O. Collins explained in their earlier book, Africa’s Thirty Years War: Libya, Chad, and the Sudan, 1963–1993. The Long Road to Disaster in Darfur updates this study and covers the events of the last thirteen years.
