Auteur: Flint, Julie & Alex de Waal
Sub titel: A Short History of a Long War (Second Edition)
Darfur has become synonymous with genocide and humanitarian crisis. In media accounts, the conflict has been simplified to pictures of sprawling refugee camps and lurid accounts of rape and murder. Yet behind these images lies a complex and fascinating story of a remote and remarkable region of Africa. `Darfur: A Short History of a Long War' provides a short history of the region, and 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 analyses the confused responses of the Sudanese government and African Union. This new, thoroughly updated edition also features a powerful analysis of how the conflict has been received in the international community, the halting peace talks and attempts at peacekeeping.
