A definitive new edition, edited and with an introduction by James W. Muller (Univ. of Alaska); Preface by Lady Soames Originally published in two volumes in 1899, The River War has been out of print in its original, unabridged version since it was shortened to one volume in 1902. The original version abounded in colorful stories about Churchill, controversial judgments on his contemporaries (especially his commanding officer, Lord Kitchen-er), and thoughts on Islamic fundamentalism and British imperialism. Because they were left out of every subsequent edition, they are all but unknown today, even to scholars. The 1899 edition was illustrated with drawings, photogravures, and colored maps not in later versions. The new St. Augustine's Press edition includes the entire text of the original edition, returned to print for the first time in a century. It also includes all material added or altered in later editions of the book. New appendices add a definitive new edition of Churchill's newspaper dispatches from the Sudan, based for the first time on his original manuscripts, as well as Churchill's other Sudan writings from 1898 to 1958. The new edition has a new foreword by Churchill's only surviving child, Lady Soames. James Muller's years of research adds thousands of new footnotes identifying people who figure in The River War, explaining Churchill's references to other books and events, tracking down the original dispatches and illustrations, and establishing a text that encompasses all variations in previous editions. These elements distinguish the new edition from any other and make it the definitive version of The River Warfor all time.
