Alex de Waal on Fighting for Darfur

“Moving between American college campuses, the halls of the UN and African Union, the policy battles within Washington DC, the International Criminal Court in The Hague, and Darfur itself, Fighting for Darfur is a vivid account of how a vicious conflict in a forgotten part of Africa came to define an international movement to
stop mass atrocity. Herself one of the earliest and most influential of Darfur activists, Rebecca Hamilton’s book poses tough questions for Darfur advocacy movement and the ambition of a global citizens’ movement against genocide, which it has spawned.”

— Alex de Waal, co-author of Darfur: A Short History of a Long War
