Further Readings: Darfur and Genocide

Last Saturday, a rally was held in New York to raise awareness of the conflict and genocide in Darfur, a western region of the Sudan. I am, like I assume many of you are, only aware of this tragic current event in the most cursory of ways, so I asked one of our booksellers to create a list of books that might illuminate. Here it is:

Famine That Kills: Darfur, Sudan, Alex De Waal

War In Darfur And The Search For Peace, Alex De Waal

Darfur: The Ambiguous Genocide, Gerard Prunier

A Problem From Hell: America And The Age Of Genocide, Samantha Power

Why Not Kill Them All?: The Logic And Prevention Of Mass Political Murder, Daniel Chirot

Final Solutions: Mass Killing And Genocide In The Twentieth Century, Benjamin Valentino

The Specter Of Genocide: Mass Murder In Historical Perspective, Robert Gellatly

This is by no means an exhaustive list. Know any others? Drop us a comment.
