The Lord's Resistance Army is Africaa€™s most persistent and notorious 'terrorist' group. Led by the mysterious Joseph Kony, it has committed a series of horrific human rights abuses, including massacres and mutilations. Since the mid 1980s, it has abducted tens of thousands of people, including large numbers of children forced to train as fighters. The IC in 2005 issued warrants for Kony and his top commanders, and the United States is backing a military campaign against the group. But the LRA survives, continuing to inspire both fascination and fear. Authoritative but provocative, The Lorda€™s Resistance Army provides the most comprehensive analysis of the group available. From the roots of the violence to the oppressive responses of the Ugandan government and the failures of the international community, this collection looks at this most brutal of conflicts in fascinating depth, and includes a remarkable first-hand interview with Kony himself.7Quoted, e.g., in a#39;ADF rebels are like hyenasa€“ Musevenia#39;, Daily Monitor, 16 February 2000. ... 13 Authora#39;s interview with a#39;Marthaa#39;, an eighteen-year-old female student (Gulu town, 15 February 2000). ... with Africa as a picturesque backdrop to your macho derring-doa#39; (Michela Wrong, a#39;A bumptious guide to book writinga#39;, Newanbsp;...
