Well, what do you know -- commenter Adrian turns out to have a blog with lots of interesting stuff on the Touareg rebellions in Mali & Niger. He also has a meaty thesis on the whole thing, available in PDF. Read! Learn!
I'm now blogging mostly over at the MAGHREB POLITICS REVIEW, but your comments, suggestions, material and tips will still be received by e-mail at: westernsaharainfo / at / gmail.com or publicly in the comments section.
