Product description

Review

'Disentangling myth from reality in Darfur is so difficult that the credentials of those who judge events there are particularly important. Those of both authors of this ... work are excellent' 'A masterpiece.' Sudan - The Passion of the Present http://platform.blogs.com/passionofthepresent/2005/11/the_word_is_gen.html 11-29-2005 '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 ‘The book is an impressive source of detailed information about a conflict that has been grossly over-simplified by most western reporters and advocacy groups.' Alan J. Kuperman, Lyndon B. Johnson, School of Public Affairs University of Texas 'That is the book Darfur: fast: moving, insightful, elaborate and intriguing; ... So graphic the stories, it is as good as watching a movie on Darfur; you see what you read' 'For anyone who wants to understand the politics of Sudan, the history of the suffering peoples and the possible solutions, this is the right book.' Sunday Monitor Praise for the First Edition: 'The best introduction is Darfur: A Short History of a Long War by Julie Flint and Alex de Waal...their accounts are as readable as they are tragic' Nicholas D. Kristof in 'The New York Review of Books' ‘A very clear-sighted account ... the book I would give first to anyone wanting to become acquainted with the crisis in Darfur.’ African Affairs
