Inside West NileSAR Press PublicationInside West Nile: Violence, History, and Representation on an African FrontierWest Nile is best known as the home of Uganda’s notoriously violent dictator, Idi Amin. But the area’s association with violence goes back well into the colonial era. This book examines the relationships between past and present and among violence, narrative, and memory in the former West Nile district. The book contributes to debates in political anthropology on border areas, the local state, and the nature of the “post-colonial.” It will be of interest to all those who study questions of violence, narrative, and memory.
