    Boydell & Brewer Group Ltd 2014; US$ 65.63

    "Nowhere has a range of case studies of Sudan been brought together in a single volume. Given the concern with the growing number and complexity of conflicts in Sudan and South Sudan there is a significant readership in academic circles and from those involved in humanitarian organisations of all kinds." Professor Peter Woodward, University of Reading... more...

  • Darfur: A tragedy of climate changeby Mohamed Osman Akasha

    Diplomica Verlag 2014; US$ 37.79

    In 2003, Darfur started to attract the attention of the international community following the outbreak of the conflict.

  • The Borderlands of South Sudanby Christopher Vaughan; Mareike Schomerus; Lotje de Vries

    Palgrave Macmillan 2013; US$ 100.00

    Moving beyond the current fixation on "state construction," the interdisciplinary work gathered here explores regulatory authority in South Sudan's borderlands from both contemporary and historical perspectives.

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 140.00

    No other crisis in Africa has received as much attention in the West during the past 10 years as the war in Darfur, yet the underlying complexities of the war and the background to the crisis remains poorly understood by scholars, activists and aid workers. This anthropological study of the war in Darfur explores the personal experience of war... more...

  • Becoming Pluralby Richard Boggs

    Garnet Publishing (UK) Ltd 2013; US$ 10.19

    In July 2011, Sudan officially 'became plural', as the country split in two; the unofficial north - south divide between the Arabdominated north and the more ethnically African south was formalised, after the people of Southern Sudan voted overwhelmingly to separate from the rest of the country. Becoming Plural is a beautifully illustrated travelogue... more...
