Abstract

The British writer and "activist" David Hoile launched a new publication on Sudan in 2005. This work comes under the title, Darfur In Perspective, and is published by his own London-based Organisation. Sifting through the analysis of the book, the reader would be forgiven for concluding that the book is either an evil joke or otherwise a work commissioned by the like of Musa Hilal, the notorious Darfur Janjaweed (Arab Militia) leader, whose name is certain to top the UN list for Darfur war criminals.
