Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a narrative of the second Tamasheq rebellion, starting in June 1990, up until March 1996. The rebellion took place in a generally turbulent period in Malian history in which dictatorship was replaced with democracy. Both the democratisation and the Tamasheq rebellion led to an upsurge in Malian nationalism that found its expression partly in the resistance against any compromise with the Tamasheq nationalist rebels. One of the aims of this book is to show the workings of contemporary Tamasheq politics. All issues that have so far been central in this book were magnified and played out in violent ways throughout the six years of rebellion. The story focuses on the conflict between Hamor and Jacob over the raping and kidnapping of Jacob's daughter Dinah by Hamor's son Sichem.
