Description


Sudan is a country in turmoil, ravaged by civil war, plagued by roaming gangs of rebel and government militia, and is rarely out of the news. Despite government propaganda, tales of state-sponsored murder, genocide and humanitarian crises are rife, and there is a real need for a measured investigation which carefully examines the causes of the troubles. In this important book, Jok Madut Jok delves deep into Sudan's culture and past, isolating the factors that cause its fractured national identity. Highlighting the Arabization of the central government in the north and the imposition of this cultural identity upon Darfur and the Christian South, Jok analyses the vicious cycle of violence and goes on to ask what can be done to improve the plight of the Sudanese people in the future. Filled with sharp argument and heroic tales in the face of adversity, Sudan will appeal to everyone who wishes to gain a greater understanding of the current crises facing Sudan and its people.
