Sudan has long been a country of two halves, united by colonial boundaries. Juba, the capital of South Sudan, was the center of huge celebration when the country was declared a new and independent state in 2012. This landmark book recounts how the South history unrolled over the past 100 years - essential reading for anyone needing to understand Sudan today.

Dr. Lam Akol is a South Sudanese politician of Shuluk descent. He is the current leader of SPLM for Democratic Change (SPLM-DC), which he founded 6 June 2009. He is a former high-ranking official in the Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA), and subsequently became the minister of foreign affairs for the Republic of Sudan from September 2005 to October 2007, when the Khartoum government offered the SPLA several other key ministries as part of a peace agreement. Dr. Akol started his career as a lecturer in chemical engineering at the University of Khartoum, with a PhD from the University of London.
