Editorial Reviews


'This book is a timely reminder of Francis Deng's lifelong efforts to advance peace and cooperation among Sudanese. It provides a strong basis for dialogue on the future of Sudan and insight on how the country's most challenging questions can be answered.-former President Jimmy Carter

''Dr. Deng has written a book of extraordinary importance, one that is rich inwell-documented information, gives insight beyond any prior publication, andpoints the way toward practical solutions.'' -David A. Hamburg, M.D.

As an old Sudanese proverb so rightly says, a difficult path necessitates a competent guide and there could be no better guide through the complexities of the forthcoming referendum on Sudan's future than Francis Deng. With customary skill and candor, he outlines the road ahead without failing to warn of dangerous turns and treacherous shortcuts. His book is a timely comment on a situation of grave concern to Africa and the international community.-Kofi Annan
