Sudan has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. After decades of civil war, rebel uprisings and power struggles, in 2011 it gave birth to the world's newest country - South Sudan. But it's not been an easy transition, and the secession that was meant to pave the path to peace, has plunged the region into further chaos.

In this updated edition of his ground-breaking investigation, Jok Madut Jok delves deep into Sudan's culture and history, isolating the factors that continue to cause its fractured national identity. With moving first-hand testimonies, Jok provides a decisive critique of a region in turmoil, and addresses what must be done to break the tragic cycle of racism, poverty and brutality that grips Sudan and South Sudan.
