Darfur Revisited

Category: Uncategorized<ADMINNICENAME> @ 9:20 PM

The great French Africanist Gerard Prunier has published a revised and expanded edition of his small 2005 classic, “Darfur: The Ambiguous Genocide.” Published by Cornell University Press, the new edition contains a new final chapter and retains essential insights into the deceptively complex conflict in Sudan’s Darfur region.  In a new preface, Prunier ponders the worsening crisis in Darfur and the inability of the international community to craft and impose a resolution. While still a compact book — of less than 200 pages of prose — “Darfur: The Ambiguous Genocide” remains an essential introduction to one of the world’s most costly conflicts.

For a longer take on the book, see my Salon review of the original edition.
