The most important book on the Darfur conflict 20 Nov 2008
By Savo Heleta - Published on
Format: Paperback
"War in Darfur and the Search for Peace" is by far the best book on the current conflict in Darfur. One of the reasons for this is the fact that the contributors are not only Westerners, but also Sudanese and Darfurians. The contributions cover all the important issues about the roots of the Darfur conflict and the prospects for peace.

I hope those who want to understand the Darfur conflict read this book.

A thorough look 10 Feb 2008
By Seth J. Frantzman - Published on
Format: Paperback
This important book rbings together the scholarship of many authors to offer insight into all facets of the Darfur conflict and its history and why the world should have paid attention sooner. One of the greatest human crises of the first decade of the 21st century, Darfur is the latest genocide to follow on the heels of Rwanda and Cambodia, in which the West did nothing to prevent the same genocide everyone declared would never happen againa fter the Holocaust.

Instead 200,000-400,000 are dead and a million are refugees and neighboring states from Chad to the Central African Republic are being torn asunder by the conflict which pits the genocidal Janjaweed Arab militias against the poor African people of Darfur. This is not a war over religion, although the history shows that the Arab Muslims who invaded Sudan in the 8th century have long considered the black muslims as inferior as as 'abd' or slaves. It is not truly about resources, as Ban Ki Moon has said. It is, in fact, a well coordinated, government supported genocide.
