Dancing in the Glory of Monsters: The Collapse of the Congo and the Great War of Africa
This critically-acclaimed book provides an unprecedented, up-close portrait of Africa's Great War. At the heart of Africa is the Congo, a country the size of Western Europe, bordering nine other nations, that since 1996 has been wracked by a brutal and unstaunchable war in which millions have died. It has become Africa's Great War. Despite its epic proportions, the war has received little sustained attention from the rest of the world. How do you cover a war that has involved at least twenty different rebel groups and nine government armies yet seems to have no clear cause or objective? How do you put a human face on vast numbers of casualties most of whom perished in remote mountain towns and villages? The New York Times gave Darfur nearly four times the coverage it gave the Congo in 2006, while Congolese were dying at nearly ten times the rate.
