The dark Sahara : America's war on terror in Africa by Jeremy Keenan( )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The US is keen to build a substantial military presence in Africa, citing the need to combat the growth of Al-Qaeda in Somalia, Algeria & other countries. This book reveals the secret US agenda behind the 'war on terror' in Africa & the shocking methods used to perpetuate the myth that the region is a hot-bed of Islamic terrorism
The dying Sahara : US imperialism and terror in Africa by Jeremy Keenan( )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Dark Sahara Jeremy Keenan exposed the collusion between the U.S. and Algeria in fabricating false flag terrorism to justify the launch of a new Saharan front in Washington's War on Terror. In this new book, he reveals how the Pentagon's designation of the region as a Terror Zone has destroyed the lives and livelihoods of thousands of innocent people. Beginning in 2004, with what local people called the U.S. invasion of the Sahel, The Dying Sahara shows how repressive, authoritarian regimes, cashing in on US terrorism rents, provoked Tuareg rebellions in both Niger and Mali. Multinationals expropriated Tuareg lands for uranium and puppeteers in Washington and Algiers pulled the strings of a new, narco-trafficking Al Qaeda. Keenan's chillingly detailed research shows that the U.S. and its new combatant African command (AFRICOM), far from bringing security, peace, and development, have created a self-fulfilling prophecy of terror and instability in a region the size of western Europe.--

The Lesser Gods of the Sahara Social Change and Indigenous Rights by Jeremy Keenan( )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The northern Tuareg (the Tuareg of Algeria) - the nomadic, blue-veiled warlords of the Central Sahara - were finally defeated militarily by the French at the battle of Tit in 1902. Some sixty years later, following Algerian independence in 1962, they were visited by a young English anthropologist, Jeremy Keenan. During the course of seven years, Keenan studied their way of life, the social, political and economic changes that had taken place in their society since traditional, pre-colonial times, and their resistance and adaptation to the modernising forces of the new Algerian state. In 1999, following eight years during which Algeria's Tuareg were effectively isolated from the outside world as a result of Algeria's political crisis, Keenan returned to visit them once again. Following a further four years of study, he has written a series of eight essays that capture the key changes that have occurred amongst Algeria's Tuareg in the forty years since independence
The Tuareg( Visual )

15 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film is about a group of nomadic Tuareg living high up in the Hoggar Mountains near Tamanrasset in Algeria. The main focus of the film is the collapse of the former economic basis of their camps. In 1962 the Algerian government banned the system of slavery and contract labour which had helped to keep the Tuareg camps supplied with grain. Now, instead of undertaking 500 mile long trading journeys to Niger, Tuareg buy grain in Tamanrasset with money obtained form selling cheap leather goods to the burgeoning tourist trade. The commentary, by Jeremy Keenan, also introduces aspects of the Tuareg kinship system, and material about the social life of the group. The second part of the film concentrates on the devastating effects of the recent drought on this way of life. The pasture is now so poor that camps have to move more frequently, and so traditional patterns of life are being abandoned in favour of a sedentary existence as cultivators alongside the Tuareg's former slaves
The Sahara : past, present and future by Jeremy Keenan( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection examines the Sahara holistically from the earliest (prehistoric) times through the 'historical' period to the present and with political direction into the future. The contributions cover palaeoclimatology, history, archaeology (cultural heritage), social anthropology, sociology, politics and international affairs. Structured chronologically, the volume can almost be read as a narrative of the Sahara from the earliest times to the present, i.e. from the past climates of the Sahara in prehistoric times to the current 'war on terror' and its implications for the peoples of the

Sahara man : travelling with the Tuareg by Jeremy Keenan( Book )

4 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1999 Jeremy Keenan flew to Algeria, a country that had been virtually closed to the outside world throughout the 1990s by a bloody civil war. He was in search of the Tuareg, the fearsome veiled nomadic warlords of the Central Sahara with whom he had lived as a young anthropologist during the 1960s. Few knew more about them than Keenan, but even then their way of life was under threat and after he left in 1971 he could never bear to return, afraid of what he would find. Now, thirty years later, and against all advice, he was going back." "Landing in Tamanrasset, which he remembered as a small French colonial town, Keenan found a sprawling concrete jungle and despaired of ever making contact with his Tuareg friends, until a chance meeting set him on his way. Travelling with them into their traditional fortress, the vast mountainous area of Ahaggar, in the tracks of bandits and sleeping beside caves decorated with prehistoric cave paintings, Keenan discovered that the Tuareg who, after the horrors of Algeria's war of independence had learned to survive as tourist guides, were now being starved out of their means of livelihood by the violence in the north. Yet still, despite these shifting sands, much that he recognized remained." "His book takes us into the heart of the Sahara - into the lives and minds of the Tuareg, into his own past and into the fearful history and the present-day experience of Algeria itself."--Jacket

The article focuses on the alternative truths and the collapse of the second Saharan front in the war on terror.

It provides a summary and largely descriptive account of the Saharan war on terror, which has been described, albeit sometimes in nothing more than short newspaper items, in an estimated 3000 official government press releases, articles, and media reports of one sort or another
