Ethnicity and the making of history in northern Ghana by Carola Lentz ( )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Drawing on two decades of research this social and political history of North-Western Ghana traces the creation of new ethnic and territorial boundaries, categories and forms of self-understanding, and represents a major contribution to debates on ethnicity, colonialism and the 'production of history'. It explores the creation and redefinition of ethnic distinctions and commonalities by African and European actors, showing that ethnicity's power derives from a contradiction: while ethnic identities purport to be non-negotiable, creating permanent bonds, stability and security, the boundaries of the communities created and the associated traits and practices are malleable and adaptable to specific interests and contexts."--Jacket
Darfur : a new history of a long war by Julie Flint ( Book )
10 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Written by two authors with unparalleled first-hand experience of Darfur, this book is the definitive guide. Newly updated and hugely expanded, this edition details Darfur's history. It traces the origins, organization and ideology of the infamous Janjawiid and rebel groups. It also analyses the brutal response of the Sudanese government. The authors investigate the responses by the African Union and the international community, including the halting peace talks and the attempts at civilian protection. Flint and de Waal provide an authoritative and compelling account of contemporary Africa's most controversial conflict."--Jacket
