The following is a list of some of the articles, books, commentary, interviews, poems and reviews by David Morse.
- February 2012: Review of Fighting for Darfur: Public Action and the Struggle to Stop Genocide by Rebecca Hamilton. Among the flurry of recent Darfur books, Rebecca Hamilton's is exemplary and should be of special interest to Friends. Darfur remains a litmus test of how, in the 21st century, the international community responds to a genocide when there is time to ascertain the facts and find the political will to intervene to save innocent lives. Did the Darfur advocacy movement in the U.S. succeed or fail? Rebecca Hamilton addresses the question of efficacy from a purely secular perspective: How much impact can ordinary citizens exert on American foreign policy? Fighting for Darfur lives up to its title. It is the quintessential testimony to the struggle so many of us embraced. Accurate and unsentimental, it is destined to become a classic in peace studies.
- February 2012: Review of Why Africa Matters by Cedric Mayson, portrays Africa not as victim, despite the history of exploitation, but as a continent with valuable spiritual traditions from which we might learn.
