The Fate of Sudan by John Young
The Origins and Consequences of a Flawed Peace Process

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The Fate of Sudan argues forcefully that the birth of the independent state of South Sudan and the threat of further dismemberment of northern Sudan are due to the failure of the approaches and ideologies of the main Sudanese parties, as well as a deeply flawed US-backed peace process that excluded civil society and other rebel groups. Written by someone directly involved in the Sudanese referendum and featuring a wealth of first-hand evidence, this is a crucial examination of a topic of intense political and media interest.
