Darfur's sorrow : a history of destruction and genocide by M. W Daly( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Darfur is a region set apart: huge, remote, and poverty stricken. Its people are today locked in conflict, terrorized by the lawless Arab militia known as janjawid, which has created what the United Nations has called "the world's worst humanitarian disaster." As M.W. Daly, distinguished historian and long-term observer of the Sudan, explains, the roots of the crisis lie deep in Darfur's past. Tracing the story to the origins of the Fur state in the seventeenth century, through imperial expansion, revolution, and finally Darfur's annexation by the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, he shows how years of neglect left the region unprepared for independence. The final chapters focus on the years thereafter, as successive governments failed to rise to the challenges of institution building and economic and political administration, and the region descended into chaos."--Jacket
A history of the Sudan : from the coming of Islam to the present day by P. M Holt( Book )

45 editions published between 1969 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: A History of the Sudan by Martin Daly and PM Holt, sixth edition, has been fully revised and updated and covers the most recent developments that have occurred in Sudan over the last nine years, including the crisis in Darfur. The most notable developments that this text covers includes the decades-long civil war in the South (with the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in January 2005); the emergence of the Sudan as an oil-producer and exporter, and its resulting higher profile in global economic affairs, notably as a partner of China; the emergence of al-Qaeda, the relations of Sudanese authorities with Osama bin Laden (whose headquarters were in the Sudan in the 1990s), and the Sudanese government's complicated relations with the West
The Cambridge history of Egypt by M. W Daly( Book )

39 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cambridge History of Egypt offers the first comprehensive English-language treatment of Egyptian history through thirteen centuries, from the Arab conquest to the present day. The two-volume survey considers the political, socio-economic, and cultural history of the world's oldest state, summarizing the debates and providing insight into current controversies. As today's Egypt reclaims a leading role in the Islamic, Arab, and Afro-Asian worlds, the project stands as testimony to its complex and vibrant past. Volume 2 traces Egypt's modern history from the Ottoman conquest to the end of the twentieth century. A wide range of scholars from the humanities and social sciences have been brought together to explore the history of the period. Their conclusions reflect the work of traditional scholarship and also indicate present trends and future directions in historical writing in Egypt

Empire on the Nile : the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, 1898-1934 by M. W Daly( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first comprehensive survey of the political and economic history of the Sudan from the establishment of the Anglo-Egyptian Condominium in 1898 until 1934. Based mainly on unpublished sources in the Sudan, Britain, and elsewhere, the book provides much information on important aspects of government and administration, Sudanese-British relations, early modern politics, and economic and social developments. It also analyses issues in Condominium history (such as indirect rule, the rise of neo-Mahdism, the crisis of 1924) in the light of previously unused archival material, offering insights and interpretations. Illustrated with contemporary photographs and including an extensive bibliography of unpublished sources, Empire on the Nile is essential background for an understanding of the social and economic issues confronting the Sudan today, and serves also as a case study in British imperial rule in Africa and the Middle East.--Publisher description
Imperial Sudan : the Anglo-Egyptian condominium, 1934-1956 by M. W Daly( Book )

17 editions published between 1990 and 2002 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Imperial Sudan completes a study of the formative colonial period during which Britain and Egypt ruled the country. The takes the narrative to independence in 1956 and thus, with Empire, constitutes the first comprehensive survey of the political and economic history of the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan. The author examines the structure of the colonial regime, its role in Anglo-Egyptian relations, and the development of Sudanese nationalist politics during the inter-war years. He surveys economic and social developments, including government finance and development policy, transport and communications, agricultural production, and social services. He reveals the Sudan's important role in the Second World War, when the Sudan Defence Force held back Italian invasion. The complicated path to self-government and self-determination, which culminated in independence in 1956, is explained in great detail. The book ends with the transfer of power, and the author reflects on the legacy of the Condominium

Darfur's sorrow : the forgotten history of a humanitarian disaster by M. W Daly( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Until the depredations of the fearsome rabble known as janjawid began to filter into the international consciousness in 2003, Darfur was one of the least-known places in the world. Poor, remote, landlocked, and sparsely populated, it was obscure even to the rest of the Sudan. Darfur's western borders are as far from the Red Sea as they are from the Atlantic, and the overland journey from Khartoum, the Sudanese capital on the Nile, still takes days across the desert. Darfur has no valuable minerals (although oil drillers live in hope), no famous sons or daughters, no natural wonders or monuments to attract any but the hardiest foreign visitors. When word of the killings began to seep out in 2003, it seemed to a perplexed world to be news from a void"--Provided by publisher

A history of South Sudan : from slavery to independence by Øystein H Rolandsen( Book )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

South Sudan is the world's youngest independent country. Established in 2011 after two wars, South Sudan has since reverted to a state of devastating civil strife. This book is the first general history of the new country, from the arrival of Turco-Egyptian explorers in Upper Nile, the turbulence of the Mahdist revolutionary period, the chaos of the 'Scramble for Africa', during which the South was prey to European and African adventurers and empire builders, to the Anglo-Egyptian colonial era. Special attention is paid to the period since Sudanese independence in 1956, when Southern disaffection grew into outright war, from the 1960s to 1972, and from 1983 until the Comprehensive Peace of 2005, and to the transition to South Sudan's independence. The book concludes with coverage of events since then, which since December 2013 have assumed the character of civil war, and with insights into what the future might hold
