Darfur: The Ambiguous Genocide

In the American Prospect Kyle Matyla takes a look at Darfur: The Ambiguous Genocide by Gérard Prunier, a French academic. It’s the first book on the ongoing genocide in Darfur. The review serves as a good summary of the conflict, whose complexity has too often served as a barrier for action. (To read what some students have accomplished, check out this Mother Jones interview with Darfur activist Nate Wright.) The world has a duty to read up—and act up—before even more die.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
