Scott Guggenheim is the most influential development expert you've never heard of.

Reviews

Jody Williams on Fighting for Darfur


“A masterful feat of original research and reporting, Fighting for Darfur is an authoritative account of the impact of the first sustained citizens’ movement against genocide. With Hamilton’s fierce determination to get beyond self-congratulatory slogans and taken-for-granted assumptions about what is required to save lives at risk, she provides insights that will be invaluable for concerned citizens, human rights advocates and policymakers alike for years and years to come. Essential reading for anyone who wants to help build a better world.”
– Jody Williams, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, founding coordinator of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines

Gareth Evans on Fighting for Darfur


“Rebecca Hamilton captures brilliantly the passion and commitment of the Save Darfur movement, but is also cool and clear-headed about what went wrong. She is especially strong on the ever-present risk for any mass campaign organization of over-simplifying multi-dimensional and ever-changing situations. Complex solutions for complex problems don’t make good bumper stickers, and getting what you wish for doesn’t always address the real issues. This is ‘lessons learned’ writing at its best, compelling reading for policymakers, community activists and anyone anywhere ashamed at our inability to stop mass atrocity crimes, and determined to make the now almost universally accepted responsibility to protect principle a universal reality on the ground.”
– Gareth Evans, Foreign Minister of Australia 1988-96; Co-Chair, International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty 2000-01; and author of The Responsibility to Protect: Ending Mass Atrocity Crimes Once and for All

Jon Sawyer on Fighting for Darfur


“Fighting for Darfur is the story of missed opportunities and unintended consequences. It’s also a timely call for more realistic and more effective approaches – by policy makers and citizen activists alike—as Sudan enters a turbulent transition that threatens the people of Darfur and beyond.”
–Jon Sawyer, Executive Director, Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting
