This book provides background material on the complex nature of the crisis in Darfur. Detail is given to the many different groups which has played a role in this crisis. For example, in this study it is explained that on the one side of this armed conflict there is the Sudanese military and the Janjaweed, a militia group. On the other side are a host of rebel groups, like the Sudan Liberation Movement and the Justice and Equality Movement. The authors in the first chapter try to explain this relationship, as it led to the current humanitarian disaster, which in part has displaced thousands of people. For those who are not familiar with the Sudan, there is also a chapter dedicated to country profile, which provide basic information on the make-up of Sudan.
