Written by two authors with unparalleled first-hand experience of Darfur, this is the definitive guide. Newly updated and hugely expanded, this edition details Darfur's history in Sudan. It traces the origins, organization and ideology of the infamous Janjawiid and rebel groups, including the Sudan Liberation Army and the Justice and Equality Movement. It also analyses the brutal response of the Sudanese government. The authors investigate the responses by the African Union and the international community, including the halting peace talks and the attempts at peacekeeping. Flint and de Waal provide an authoritative and compelling account of contemporary Africa's most controversial conflict.… (mere)

Varmasti tärkeä, mutta vaikealukuinen teos. Keskittymistä vaivasi jatkuva nimien virta ja muutenkin luettelomaisuus. Välillä myös sodan kauhuja luetteloitiin raakuuksia luetteloimalla, mikä loi vain vaikutelmaa puolueellisuudesta (tosin luultavasti ihan aiheellisesti, mutta tällainen taktiikka ei herätä lukijassa luottamusta kirjoittajia kohtaan). Yksityiskohtien sijaan näin suppea teos olisi toiminut paremmin yleisiä suuntaviivoja hahmottelemalla. Teos onnistui kuitenkin avartamaan näkemystä konfliktin monimutkaisuudesta. ( )

This was a rough read. I've got no doubt that it's the definative text on Darfur and the history leading up to current conditions, but the book just wasn't written with readers in mind. Unless you already know everything that the authors are writing about, there are going to be many moments when you're confused as far as time goes---for two paragraphs, the authors will be covering events in 2008, and suddenly the mention of a particular place, person, or event takes you back to 2004, or to somewhere in the past that isn't entirely clear. Simply, the timelines here are incredibly confused, to the extent that it often comes across as a stream-of-consciousness history that was never really organized before being put to paper. Additionally, the constant name dropping makes the read difficult, and complicates the already hard-to-handle timeline. The information is here, but it's not presented in a fashion that's open to readers who aren't already somewhat familiar with the book's subject. As someone who's read various texts on Darfur, I have to say that this was by far the most difficult and confusing to read---it might imitate the chaos of the situation, but it's not a strategy for imparting informatin to readers.

An excellent short overview of the war in Darfur by two old Sudan hands, Julie Flint and Alex de Waal. They begin by looking at land rights several hundred years ago, and this serves to highlight the complexity of the conflict and to explain why it doesn't succumb to the "quick fix" solutions which the international community tends to favour.

'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, Journal of Genocide Research

'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

Being a short history their book is more episodic than comprehensive, but enables them to ‘trace the local, national, and regional origins of the disaster’ (p. xii) from personal encounters and with journalistic flair, which carries their message to the reader much more effectively than any turgid encyclopaedic compilation of facts.
