About the book:

Emma McCunes passion for Africa, her unstinting commitment to the children of Sudan, and her youthful beauty and glamour set her apart from other relief workers from the moment she arrived in southern Sudan. But no one was prepared for her decision to marry a local warlorda man who seemed to embody everything she was working againstand to throw herself into his violent quest to take over southern Sudans rebel movement.

With precision and insight, Deborah Scrogginswho met McCune in Sudancharts the process by which McCunes romantic delusions led to her descent into the hell of Africas longest-running civil war. Emmas War is at once a disturbing love story and an up-close look at Sudan: a world where international aid fuels armies as well as the starving population, and where the northern-based Islamic governmentbacked by Osama bin Ladenis locked in a war with the Christian and pagan south over religion, oil, and slaves.

A timely, revelatory account of the nature of relief work, of the men and women who choose to carry it out, and of one womans sacrifice to its ideals.
