Summary

Ravaged by civil war, and plagued by roaming gangs of rebel and government militia, Sudan and Darfur are rarely out of the news. Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed, over two million have fled their homes, and rape, humanitarian crises and state-sponsored genocide are all rife.

In this groundbreaking investigation, Jok Madut Jok delves deep into Sudan's culture and history, isolating the factors that have caused its fractured national identity. With moving first-hand testimonies, Jok provides a decisive critique of a country in turmoil, and addresses what must be done to break the tragic cycle of racism, poverty, and brutality that grips Sudan and its people.
