Darfur The Road to Peace book
In 2003 and 2004, Darfur became the epicentre of an international crisis. The three Darfur states, the size of Texas, lie in the largest African state - Sudan. Darfur itself has a complex tribal, ethnic and linguistic composition, and the complexities of the conflict have been magnified by international and regional events. But this is no excuse for the disinformation and confusion about Darfur. This book analyses the causes and course of the war as well as the obstacles to peace. In so doing, it challenges accusations of genocide and racism made against the government of Sudan. It is also critical of both the simplistic and often inaccurate media coverage of the war and of the role played by western governments and "advocacy" groups such as "Save Darfur" in artificially prolonging the conflict. Most important of all, the book examines the road map to peace in Darfur.
The Book is available on Amazon:
