Abstract:

In recent years, George Clooney has become politically engaged, lending his energy, money, and name to a number of humanitarian, environmental, and liberal causes. Chief among these is his valiant effort to alert the world to a humanitarian crisis that has been raging virtually unchecked in the Darfur region of Sudan since 2003. It may turn out that George Clooney's most heroic role was played behind the scenes. This book offers both a thorough biography of this larger-than-life movie star and an account of his passionate engagement in global politics on behalf of Darfur's innocent victims.
