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.
John writes this book to tell the narrative about Darfur, but does so in a readable way that can be understood by anyone. So many books are written by academics that quickly lose their audience. Here, interspersed throughout the book are diary entries from both John and Don that help us get the back story of their work as well as help us through the frustration of what they were doing. I was so moved and inspired by the fact that no matter how down Don got, he kept picking himself up, dusting himself off and got going again. I just saw him on the Late Show and low and behold...he was wearing those boots!
I will certainly use this book in my Genocide Studies class this year and I strongly recommend others to read this book and then act to stop the Genocide and work to prevent Genocide in the future.
