In October 1996, thirty Ugandan schoolgirls were abducted by the Lord's Resistance Army and disappeared into the bush of Northern Uganda. The girls were raped and tortured before being forced to become child soldiers and sex slaves. This was only one out of thousands of child kidnappings by merciless madman and rebel leader Joseph Kony. But for the battered civilians terrorized by rebel warfare and neglected by corrupt government, this was the breaking point. Something had to be done—the world needed to know and their girls needed to be brought home. Kathy Cook's one-on-one interviews with the surviving girls and their mothers make their fear, frustration, and suffering overwhelmingly real. With exceptional insight gained from on-location research, Cook gives us an authoritative account of how concerned parents, interfaith groups, politicians from Canada and the United States, and NGOs banded together in a struggle to rescue the girls and to mobilize a people, their country, and a global community. An emotionally charged retelling of a heartbreaking true story, Stolen Angels reminds us of the importance of faith, strength, and determination in the face of adversity.

Following the ICC intervention in 2005, northern Uganda has been at the heart of international justice debates. The emergent controversy, however, missed crucial aspects of Acholi realities: that the primary moral imperative in the wake of wrongdoing was not punishment but, instead, the restoration of social harmony. Drawing upon abundant fieldwork and in-depth interviews with almost 200 women, Holly Porter examines issues surrounding wrongdoing and justice, and sexual violence and rape, among the Acholi people in northern Uganda. This intricate exploration offers evidence of a more complicated and nuanced explanation of rape and its aftermath, suggesting a re-imagining of the meanings of post-atrocity justice, whilst acknowledging the role of sex, power and politics in all sexual experiences between coercion and consent. With its wide investigation of social life in northern Uganda, this provocative study offers vital analysis for those interested in sexual and gender violence, post-conflict reconstruction and human rights.

Detailed exploration of the this methodology and potential for rural development from its ashes after protracted military conflict into a model agricultural economy is the mandate of this book. Drawing from examples from developed economies as well as the immerging and developing regions, this compelling and comprehensive essay on the reorganization of Uganda sets out to demonstrate the importance of nucleation of large agrarian communities as a means of achieving sustainable rural development in present day Africa. The practical ideas presented by the author makes this book an important read for all those committed to rural African development. Working with local government structures, Ocitti plans what will no doubt become the backbone of the much needed Northern Uganda and indeed Uganda and African's agricultural, economical, social and cultural reform.

Conflicts in Africa, Asia and Latin America have become a common focus of advocacy by Western celebrities and NGOs. This provocative volume delves into the realities of these efforts, which have often involved compromising on integrity in pursuit of profile and influence. Examining the methods used by Western advocates, how they relate to campaigns in the countries concerned, and their impact, expert authors evaluate the successes and failures of past advocacy campaigns and offer constructive criticism of current efforts. Taking in a range of high-profile case studies, including campaigns for democracy in Burma and Latin America, for the rights of Palestinians in Gaza, and opposing the Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda, the authors challenge the assumptions set forth by advocacy organizations.

Μερικές φορές ένα κορίτσι δέχεται το άγγιγμα της Πολεμόχαρης Μητέρας. Τέτοιο κορίτσι είναι και η Θορν. Πασχίζοντας να πάρει εκδίκηση για τον θάνατο του πατέρα της, ζει μονάχα για να πολεμά. Τώρα, όμως, ο άντρας που τη δίδαξε πώς να σκοτώνει την κατηγορεί για φόνο. Μερικές φορές, μια γυναίκα γίνεται πολεμίστρια. Ξαφνικά βρίσκεται μπλεγμένη στις δολοπλοκίες του Πατέρα Γιάρβι, του πανούργου θεράποντα της Γκέτλαντ. Διασχίζοντας τον μισό κόσμο, αναζητώντας συμμάχους ενάντια στον αδίστακτο Υψηλό Βασιλέα, θα υποστεί μια σκληρή μαθητεία στο αίμα και τον δόλο. Μερικές φορές, μια πολεμίστρια γίνεται όπλο. Στο ταξίδι αυτό, έχει στο πλευρό της τον Μπραντ, έναν πολεμιστή που απεχθάνεται να σκοτώνει –αποτυχημένο τόσο στα δικά της μάτια όσο και στα δικά του–, με μία και μοναδική ευκαιρία να εξιλεωθεί. Τα όπλα υπηρετούν έναν και μόνο σκοπό. Άραγε η Θορν θα παραμείνει σε όλη της τη ζωή έρμαιο των ισχυρών ή θα καταφέρει να χαράξει τον δικό της δρόμο;
