The Darfur Genocide
This volume offers readers a history of the term ?genocide? and then moves into what has been called perhaps the foulest humanitarian crisis of the early twenty-first century: the crisis in Darfur. This edifying resource offers a look into the country?s history and the events that led up to the violence of February 2002, when Africans staged a rebellion against the Arab-controlled government of Sudan. Readers will learn about the horrors of the terrifying Janjaweed militia, or ?devils on horseback,? as the government endeavored to eradicate Africans from Darfur, the major players in the conflict, as well as the reaction around the world.
