The Post-colonial State and Civil War in Sudan : The Origins of Conflict in Darfur Paperback / softback
Part of the International Library of African Studies series
The humanitarian crisis in Darfur, a consequence of the civil war and ongoing violence, has attracted significant international media attention.
Here, Noah Bassil offers a re-conception of the conflict in Darfur by examining the origins and progression of the conflict through the broader issue of state failure in post-colonial Sudan.
By moving away from a 'localised' view of the conflict, Bassil is able to demonstrate the extent to which the breakdown of social relations in Darfur is interconnected with the wider breakdown of Sudanese and post-colonial societies, offering an examination of the nexus between international, national and local forces.
Through its coherent framework for understanding the causes of the civil war that erupted in the Darfur region in 2003, this book provides a unique examination of the conflict and the wider post-colonial situation, making it an important contribution to the fields of History, International Relations and Peace Studies.
