Darfur: A Short History of a Long War - Julie Flint, Alex de Waal
Sudan's westernmost region, Darfur, sprang into notoriety early in 2004 when a war of hideous proportions
unleashed what the United Nations called 'the world's worst humanitarian crisis'. For the last two years, the
conflict has been simplified to pictures of sprawling refugee camps and lurid accounts of 'Arabs' murdering
'Africans.' Behind these images lies a complex story of a remote region of Africa. This book details the history
of Darfur, its conflicts, and the designs on the region by the governments in Khartoum and Tripoli. It
investigates the identity of the infamous 'Janjawiid' militia and the nature of the insurrection, charts the
unfolding crisis and the international response, and concludes by asking what the future holds in store.

The Four Feathers (Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics) - A. E. W. Mason, Gary Hoppenstand (Introduction)
This is a great classic tale of adventure and honour, in the grand tradition of "The Prisoner of Zenda" and
"Beau Geste." Harry Feversham, English officer and gentleman, has been terrified since childhood by his
father's tales of cowardice under fire and the resulting dishonour. As a young man, when learning that his
regiment has been called to action, he resigns his commission unnerved by the possibilities of showing
cowardice and facing a horrible death in the Sudan at the hands of the fanatic Madhi's dervishes. Before
departing, three of his brother-officers send him white feathers, the symbol of cowardice, and Ethne Eustace
, the woman he was to have married, gives him a fourth. In despair, Feversham decides to follows his
regiment to Africa, in search of an opportunity to make his former friends take the feathers back. This quest
takes him to the grim, dangerous slums of Cairo and a hellish trek across the Sudanese desert, as he
penetrates into the heart of the Madhi's infernal domain in Omdurman to rescue rescue the very men who questioned his valor and regain his honour and the respect and love of Ethne.

Khartoum: The Ultimate Imperial Adventure
The British campaign in the Sudan in Queen Victoria's reign is an epic tale of adventure more thrilling than any
fiction. The story begins with the massacre of the 11,000 strong Hicks Pasha column in 1883. Sent to
evacuate the country, British hero General Gordon was surrounded and murdered in Khartoum by a vast
army of dervishes commanded by the Mahdi. The relief mission arrived two days too late. The result was a
national scandal that shocked the Queen and led to the fall of the British government. Twelve years later it
was the brilliant Herbert Kitchener who struck back. Achieving the impossible he built a railway across the
desert to transport his troops to the final devastating confrontation at Omdurman in 1898. Desert explorer and
author Michael Asher has reconstructed this classic tale in vivid detail. Having covered every inch of the
ground and examined all eyewitness reports, he brings to bear new evidence questioning several accepted
aspects of the story. The result is an account that sheds new light on the most riveting tale of honour, courage, revenge and savagery of late Victorian times.

Sudan shares borders with nine African countries. As such, it naturally became a zone of interaction
between the Hamitic Arabs and the Negro Africans. This blending resulted in Sudan's many different ethnic groups and unique cultures.
The Nuba, on the front lines between the north and the south of Sudan, have retained a vibrant folk tradition.
