Front Cover
AuthorHouse, 2011 - History - 732 pages
The most comprehensive, profound, and accurate book ever written in the history of modern Sudan, Integration and Fragmentation of the Sudan: An African Renaissance, is an encyclopedia of ancient and modern history as well as the politics of Sudan. It is a library of data that discusses Sudan from its economic, political, and social standpoint since the Arab discovery and use of the term Bilad es Sudan up through the modern republic of the Sudan after which South and North Sudan collided in 1947. Although written to correct fabrications, this book is a foundation on which future Sudans shall live on. It is full of useful information that discusses and provides feasible solutions to the fundamental problem of the Sudan that ruptured the country from the Berlin Conference to the post-independence era. For centuries, Sudanese and the international community have been fed with idealistic information as if Sudan started with the coming of the Arabs in the fourteenth century. This persisted due to the lack of resources and formal education among African natives. Khartoum's unreasonable diversion of genuine history is one among the many causes of mistrust and division in Sudan. The indigenous Africans found themselves peripheral to Khartoum where economic and political power is concentrated. Integration and fragmentation of Sudan: An African Renaissance is a great source of knowledge for the public and students of Sudanese politics. With the referendum and popular consultation approaching, this book is a head-start for the marginalized Black Africans to make an informed decision between oppression and liberty. Examples and testimonies provided in the text are reasons for the affected regions to permanently determine their future. For freedom diehards this book lays the foundation on which to celebrate the birth of Africa's newest sovereign nation along the Nile River.

About the author (2011)

Mawut Achiecque Mach Guarak is former child soldier in South Sudan's War of Liberation. He served in the Sudan People's Liberation Army as a foot soldier for many years before attending a refugee school in Northern Kenya. Eventually he relocated to New York in the United States where he completed his undergraduate and graduate studies. Despite relocation to the United States, distance did not keep him away from contributing to Sudan's change for freedom, justice, equality, and progress; he was a self-appointed lobbyist who rallies American support by contacting politicians and other influential figures. In addition to educating American public and politicians on the fundamental problem of the Sudan, Mawut helped organized the Sudanese Diaspora to rally international support. He was an organizer for the May 19, 2004 demonstration in Syracuse, New York and subsequent demonstrations in the United States including one at the United Nations in Manhattan.
