Saviors and Survivors
Author: Mahmood Mamdani
Publisher: Pantheon Books
Price: $32 (Hardcover)

By definition, can the war-torn situation in Darfur, Sudan be considered genocide? Mahmood Mamdani says no. The Ugandan-born Columbia University professor of anthropology and political science states his case for Sudan in his book Saviors and Survivors. The book explores the region’s history to understand present violence in the country. From infighting in Darfur’s 1980s civil war to attempted British tribalisation in the region, Saviors and Survivors examines how several domestic and international players became involved in the conflict, and how Sudan landed in the path of the American-initiated War on Terror.
