The last four hundred years of Darfur's history are traced in an in-depth examination of how the roots of the crisis today lie deep within the region's economic, social, and cultural past.

Cambridge Univ Pr
A compelling analysis of the Darfur crisis.
Darfur is a region set apart, huge, remote and poverty stricken. Its people are today locked in conflict, terrorised by the lawless Arab militia known as janjawid. As M.W. Daly explains, the roots of the crisis lie deep in Darfur's past. Tracing the story from the origins of the Fur state in the seventeenth century to Darfur's annexation by the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, he shows how years of neglect left the region unprepared for independence. This complex story is told with compassion, insight and a strong sense of place.
