Historical Dictionary of the Sudan
This third edition focuses on the Sudan in Islamic times from the 14th century to the present. There is more on the sultanates of Sinnar and Dar Fur, the Mahdiya, and the history of Islam in the Sudan, especially the chronology and analysis of significant events of the past decade, which has seen a radical Islamist movement in power in Khartoum. This revised Dictionary contains new sections built upon the recent proliferation of literature on women in the Sudan, minority and human rights, Islamism, opposition movements, and refugees and exiles from the Sudan. A comprehensive reference and research tool for undergraduate students and generalist researchers.
