Abstract:Originating from the 2008 27th annual conference of the Sudan Studies Association (SSA), these essays document and analyse Sudan's chronic history of conflict since independence in 1956 as well as its own and international efforts to bring an end to these conflicts. Contents: Part I, Discourses: Reflections on Sudanese languages of war and peace (Richard A. Lobban, Jr.); The politics of linguistic indigenousness in the Sudan (Ashraf Abdelhay, Busi Makoni and Sinfree Makoni); Southern Sudan and the applicability of the principle of voluntary unity (Mousa M. Elbasha); Making the Sudanese: slavery policies and hegemony construction in early colonial Sudan (1898-1925) (Elena Vezzadini). Part II, Resources: Nile waters: reasons for cooperation (Sam L. Laki); The Comprehensive Peace Agreement does not guarantee sustainable peace in Sudan (Mey Eltayeb Ahmed); Perspectives for peace: gender-specific views from Sudan, 2006 (Margret Otto); Negotiating belonging after the CPA: the case of Bari youth in Khartoum, Sudan (Ulrike Schultz). Part III, Legacies: The iron king: a reconsideration of the Tunjur (Jay Spaulding); The nineteenth-century rise and fall of the Bari: war, local trade, slavery, and the destruction of the Bari (Stephanie Beswick); A very dark number: estimating direct and indirect mortality in southern Sudan, 1983-2005 (Catrien Bijleveld, Olivier de Gomme and Shanna Mehlbaum); Re-division reconsidered (Randall Fegley).
