The Raging Storm

A Reporter's Inside Account of the Northern Uganda War, 1986-2005

by Caroline Lamwaka

The Raging Storm: A Reporter’s Inside Account of the Northern Uganda War, 1986-2005 is a highly personal and inside account of the northern Uganda war by a young woman whose early encounter with the conflict was as an on-the-ground war correspondent. Caroline Lamwaka’s experiences as a war-time journalist inform the narrative, the research and the broader perspective of an academically trained war and peace researcher.  The book examines four phases of the northern Uganda war. These are: the war in Acholi, Lango and Teso; the peace efforts to end the war; the impact of the war; and coping with the impact of insurgency.  Caroline Lamwaka joins other authentic voices examining the northern Uganda war.
