Editorial Reviews


"From the excellent Introduction to his thoughtful Epilogue, Robert Collins has given us a valuable farewell present with an admirable summary of his outstanding historical research over 50 years; every student of, and policymaker on, Sudan will benefit from reading it and pondering its overarching themes."
Peter Bechtold, President of the American Sudan Institute, Middle East Journal

"This informative text is indispensable for African studies collections ... Essential."

"In Collins' view, the main issue in human affairs is identity, and Sudanese modern history is about contrasting concepts of self-identification. However, in analyzing this pivotal theme, Collins integrates other vital aspects: economic developments, social changes, cultural trends, sectarian interests, personal ambitions, global factors, and the involvement of neighbors. All these dimensions are woven into an excellent composition that will remain essential for students of Sudan."
Haggai Erlich, International Journal of Middle East Studies

"... Collins takes on a fascinating journey through the recent history of Sudanese governments ... a highly readable, revealing and thought-provoking narrative."
The Journal of Modern African Studies

Book Description

Robert Collins traces Sudan's history across two hundred years to show how recent tragic events are rooted in the past. He argues that the country's religious and ethnic divides, in conjunction with failed leadership, have prolonged and sustained the conflict in Sudan.

Prof. Collins has a lifetime of research and publication in and about the Sudan--a true expert. If you wish to know about the Sudan and read only one book,this is it!

This book explains the historical background of modern Sudan in a multifaced way. I found it a bit out of objectivity but in general I have made use of the vast information in it. In short, I recommend you to read.
