  • The War in Darfurby Anders Hastrup

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 49.95

    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 from... more...

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

    Palgrave Macmillan 2013; US$ 105.00

    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.

The goal was to record and analyze... more...

    Boydell & Brewer Group Ltd 2014; US$ 26.99

    Nowhere has a range of case studies of Sudan been brought together in a single volume.

Professor Peter Woodward, University of Reading... more...
