The Benefits of Famine: A Political Economy of Famine and Relief in Southwestern Sudan, 1983-1989
The conflict in Darfur had a precursor in Sudan's famines of the 1980s and 1990s. David Keen's The Benefits of Famine presented a new and startling interpretation of the causes of war-induced famine. The book is now in paperback for the first time with a new and updated introduction by the author. The Benefits of Famine gives depth to understanding the Darfur crisis. DAVID KEEN is Professor of Complex Emergencies at the Development Studies Institute, London School of Economics North America: Ohio U Press; Uganda: Fountain Publishers
