Inhaltsangabe: 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.
Rezension: Academics,policy analysts, NGOs and civil society activists and students of civil war have waited long for a volume that goes beneath the surface as to provide in-depth synthesis of the most significant writings to date on the post-colonial Sudanese state. Noah R. Bassil s The Post-Colonial State and Civil War in Sudan has answered their call. This offers a comprehensive analysis built around a convincing thesis about the nature and recent developments of the social and political institutions which presided over the disintegration of one of Africa s most brutal post-colonial states. This book expands our understanding of civil war in Sudan and beyond in the ever-evolving geopolitics of late development, and is essential reading which requires our immediate attention. --Mohamed Salih, Deputy Rector for Research Affairs, International Institute
