9781842779507: Darfur: A New History of a Long War (African Arguments)

The humanitarian tragedy in Darfur has stirred politicians, Hollywood celebrities and students to appeal for a peaceful resolution to the crisis. Beyond the horrific pictures of sprawling refugee camps and lurid accounts of rape and murder lies a complex history steeped in religion, politics, and decades of internal unrest. 
 
Darfur traces the origins, organization and ideology of the infamous Janjawiid and other rebel groups, including the Sudan Liberation Army and the Justice and Equality Movement. It also analyzes the confused responses of the Sudanese government and African Union. This thoroughly updated edition also features a powerful analysis of how the conflict has been received in the international community and the varied attempts at peacekeeping.

About the Author:

Alex de Waal is one of the foremost experts on Sudan and the Horn of Africa and executive director of the World Peace Foundation.

Review:

"The best introduction...their accounts are as readable as they are tragic."--Nicholas D. Kristof in The New York Review of Books "This brilliant book is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the complex history of Darfur and how the very name became synonymous with suffering." --Mia Farrow  'Alex de Waal and Julie Flint have written the definitive history of the Darfur conflict.  Very detailed and thoroughly documented from first hand sources, the book will quickly become a classic and will correct some of the outside misperceptions of who did what to whom and why.  They have written a balanced account of a very disturbing story, made more confused by government and rebel propaganda, by letting participants and eyewitness observers tell their stories.' - Andrew Natsios, Former Administrator of USAID and US Special Envoy to Sudan

'This is among the best works available on the current Darfur crisis.  For a blow by blow account of developments, there is none better.' - Mahmood Mamdani, University of Columbia
