For a remote strip of Saharan desert along the Atlantic seaboard, the Western Sahara has begun to attract a lot of attention. The European Union, the USA, the UN and Morocco have all declared an interest in this former Spanish colony, not to mention the indigenous Sahraoui people, who have fought for self-determination for over quarter of a century. Toby Shelley has talked to Moroccan, Western Saharan Polisario and other diplomats, as well as contacts in the oil industry. He has visited the territory and had access to both the Moroccan administration and the underground opposition. What emerges is that there is now a real prospect of a definitive resolution to this long-running, often bloody, conflict between Morocco and the Sahraoui people.

Toby Shelley works for the Financial Times as a reporter and is a regular contributor (under a pseudonym) to Middle East International.
'Toby Shelley provides a detailed account of the region's history since 1975.' The Economist 'An excellent new book.' Ian Black, The Guardian 'Shelley's book is the most comprehensive contribution to the debate over Western Sahara in English since Tony Hodge's seminal 'Roots of a Desert War', published 20 years ago.' Deborah Hope, The Weekend Australian 'Toby Shelley focuses on the situation in the territory since the ceasefire of 1991... Where [he] takes up the story in earnest, he tells it very well, and his is the only full-length, readily available account in English that covers the years of failed diplomacy... He has visited Western Sahara and wrung a lot of interesting detail from towns where media access is strictly controlled and trouble-makers - pro-independence activists or the families of detainees - are kept away from visitors. His sense is that much now hangs on what Sahrawis in Western Sahara can do to challenge the occupation.' Jeremy Harding, The London Review of Books 'The first real study of this obscure conflict in over 20 years.' Middle East Policy
