Front Cover
ABC-CLIO, 2011 - Ethnic conflict - 556 pages
0 Reviews
Addresses a host of issues germane to the genocidal actions which the Sudanese Government has engaged in between 2003 and today (November 2010). The interviewees, all of whom were forced from their land, villages, and homes, are an eclectic group: the young and the old, men and women, the uneducated and the highly educated, common citizens, and leaders (sheiks and umdas). Their personal stories place a human face on a crisis that has resulted in the genocide of some two hundred thousand people and the deaths of scores of thousands due to what has been deemed "genocide by attrition"--The withholding of medical attention and humanitarian assistance to the black Africans as they fled and sought shelter in internally displaced persons (IDP) camps in the deserts and mountains of Darfur.
