The African-Arab Conflict in the Sudan
The African-Arab Conflict in the Sudan
By Dunstan M. Wai
Holmes & Meier, 1981, 234 pp.

Supporting his first-hand knowledge of his country's civil war with apparently careful research, a southern Sudanese political scientist provides an authoritative history of the politics of war and peace between Sudan's Arab North and African South. Positive and hopeful about present and future relations between the two areas, he nonetheless points out the fragility of the present governmental arrangement uniting them, and suggests a federal arrangement which would be effective for Arab as well as African regions.
