Cornell professors Salah M. Hassan and Carina E. Ray discuss their book Darfur and the Crisis of Governance in Sudan: A Critical Reader, a compilation of work by a diverse group of contributors from Sudan and beyond, providing the most comprehensive, balanced, and nuanced account yet published of the conflict's roots and the contemporary realities that shape the experiences of those living in the region.

The cross-disciplinary dialogue fostered by Hassan and Ray yields a comprehensive understanding of the causes, manifestations, and implications of the ongoing conflict.
