Geneva Launch of the Book « Against a Tide of Evil »

with

Dr Mukesh Kapila
The Author, Former head of the United Nations in Sudan

M. Gilles Carbonnier
Professor of Development Economics, IHEID Facilitator

Co-written with best-selling author Damien Lewis, and released for the 10th anniversary of the 21st century’s first genocide, Dr Kapila’s book is a passionate and shocking personal account of what happened when he tried to alert the world to the mass atrocities unfolding in Darfur. Drawing on extensive international experience which had taken him to previous genocides in Rwanda and Srebrenica, the book reveals, for the first time, the inside story of how and why powerful governments and the United Nations failed to act – and who should be held accountable….

In January 2013, Dr Kapila returned to Sudan’s borderlands where atrocities have not only continued in Darfur but extended further to the Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile State. He will share his insights on what must happen to stop the catastrophe there and to prevent such heinous crimes recurring elsewhere in the world.

See www.mukeshkapila.org for more information.
‘Against a Tide of Evil’ will be available for purchase at the launch and can also be ordered from bookshops, on www.amazon.co.uk as Hard back and Ebook or from www.aegistrust.org. Half the cover price – on copies bought through Aegis – goes to support its work.
