Description

Had Enough?

Join activists, organizations, and celebrities to fight human rights crimes in Africa.

Human rights activist John Prendergast and Oscar-nominated actor Don Cheadle bring us an empowering and hopeful new book, as they reveal the steps being taken by engaged citizens—"Upstanders"—famous and unknown, here and abroad, to combat genocide, rape, and child soldierdom in Africa, and show how you can be a part of the movement.

Learn how a high school student in Chicago rallied fellow students all over his city to raise awareness of genocide... a former child soldier in Uganda formed a group of others like him to aid in reconciliation... and a mother and teacher gang-raped by soldiers in Congo found strength to help other survivors. John and Don present ways for you to form alliances, contact Congress, alert the media, enlist corporations, and use social media to become part of the solution.

Featuring testimonies and interviews with:

• Ben Affleck • Madeleine Albright • Emmanuelle Chriqui • Sheryl Crow • Ann Curry • Annie Duke • Dave Eggers • Mia Farrow • Ryan Gosling • Mariska Hargitay • Emile Hirsch • Iman • Angelina Jolie • Nicholas Kristof • Joel Madden • Nicole Richie • Martin Sheen • Robin Wright • As well as a number of members of Congress and many others making a difference

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 12, 2010 – Prendergast, cofounder of the Enough Project, an initiative to end genocide, and Academy Award nominated actor Cheadle follow their bestselling Not on Our Watch (2007) with an another ambitious appeal to eradicate Africa's most deadly social problems: mass rape, genocide, and the conscription of children. Taking a positive angle, the authors contend that the genocide in Darfur, the employment of rape as a war weapon in Congo, and the use of child soldiers in Uganda is fostering a groundswell of organized resistance and activism that can "bring these nightmares to an end." Despite its unimpeachable aims, the book's execution is shoddy. An extended (and oddly stilted) dialogue between Prendergast and Cheadle serves as a fragile "narrative spine" to connect a farrago of history, commentary, and personal testimonials from survivors, activists, and a glut of celebrities, among them Mia Farrow, Ben Affleck, and Angelina Jolie. Prendergast and Cheadle conclude with an appeal for a "people's movement" to press governments to implement a strategy of "promoting peace, providing civilian protection, and ensuring punishment of the perpetrators" the 3Ps that they argue will end these crimes against humanity.
