The "actor-vist" Cheadle and his activist friend Prendergast strike the perfect tone, not understating the horrors that the Government of Sudan and the Janjaweed allies have unleashed on "African" populations of Darfur, while managing somehow to present their complex message in a user-friendly, occasionally lighthearted, and ultimately optimistic manner. The reader closes the book after the last page feeling empowered to participate in a broad social movement with the potential to effect real change. In short, we are not alone in wanting to help the people of Darfur, and we have a real opportunity to make a difference, through emphasizing the "three Ps for preventing atrocities" (protection, punishment, and peacemaking), and applying the authors' "six strategies for change". The strategies are particularly focused on constituency building and advocacy aimed at the U.S. Government.Read more ›
I think it's great that Cheadle and so many other celebrities are using their star appeal to speak out against important causes like this one. "Not On Our Watch" is a good book because it breaks down the Darfur conflict in a way that's easy for people to understand, and also offers numerous suggestions on how people can get involved with the cause. I think the book would be stronger if it included a more detailed history of the Sudanese conflict and more personal stories of the Darfurians who have been fighting for their lives. Still, this is a great book for people interested in learning more about what's really going on and who want to find out what they can do to help.
However, as an inspiring read for those who want to end genocide in Darfur and other areas, this is an excellent guide. This isn't an easy book to read but it tackles issues that none of us should turn away from, those known as "crimes against humanity" (which doesn't even begin to describe the horrors that have occurred to children and adults in various areas of the world.
If you're committed to helping make the world a better place and if you
understand that genocide and child soldiers don't result in a better world, then you need to buy this book, read it and share it with everyone you know.
The book is informative, delving into the early historical relationship between Sudan and Darfur in which ultimately led to the path of genocide; The history of Genocide; and what causes a nation to suddenly descend into mass murder. It provides all the guidelines for what us, the readers, and ordinary citizens can do to make sure that these events do not happen again.
Politics is at the forefront.Read more ›
