Praise For…

"The best introduction...their accounts are as readable as they are tragic."--Nicholas D. Kristof in The New York Review of Books "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
