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.

In 1881, a religious leader, Mohamed Ahmed El Mahdi, led a revolt against the government. His rebellion, which was a movement for both religious and political reform, was widely successful. It triumphed with the capture of Khartoum, where General Gordon, who was the last Turkish governor, was killed in 1885.
On the advice of the British, who occupied Egypt since 1882, the Turko-Egyptian government was withdrawn . Although the Mahdi died in the same year, the Sudan under his successor, the Khalifa Abd Allah remained independent until 1898

Khartoum: The Ultimate Imperial Adventure 
Michael Asher
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.

Music, Arts & Culture, Events in Dafur

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.
