Summary

Summary

The largest country in Africa, Sudan is a nation of perpetual conflict. More than 150 ethnic groups comprised of indigenous tribes, nomads, refugees, and Arab Muslims have contributed to its history of civil war and colonial turmoil -- struggles that shape Sudan's present as well as its future. Sudan possesses many resources but is wracked by conflict that prevents the people from benefitting from their wealth. The land itself, the people, and their rich and varied culture are depicted in this fascinating book.
