Excerpt

Based on four decades’ guru knowledge on the social cultures and structures of Sudanese society in the past and present times, Professor Richard Lobban, Jr., provides a unique evaluation of the current dilemma that continues to develop in long pursuit to bring about a consensual “national identification,” or to end the twentieth century’s longest armed conflict by peaceful co-existence of two separate states.

It is the first time, however, since national independence in January 1956 that a Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) opens an internationally recognized constitutional path for the Southerners to make their own choice by referendum, in the year 2011. the Sudanese people are excited to see the outcome of the referendum following scheduled elections in 2010 in spite of many different expectations already adopted on the possibilities of optional unity vis-à-vis the two states’ option. Key questions are specifically raised: whether the NCP/SPLM ruling parties would secure the settlement of these issues or whether the reemerging popular democratic opposition would finally bring a lasting and just peace by national elections.

Global Security Watch—Sudan is an intriguing volume on the urgent and most critical agenda of peace, unity, and development in contemporary Sudan, an essential guide to assess the national, regional, and international concerns regarding the present state of affairs and future prospects of the country, as well as timely analysis for the Sudanese community, with whom the author and his wife and lifelong research partner, Professor Carolyn Fluehr-Lobban, share a special passion for the history, archaeology, and anthropology of the social life, religious beliefs, and politics of Sudan. I would add to the Lobbans’ works on the country a tremendous range of friendships that accumulated over the years with many individuals and groups.
