Review for "South Sudan: A New History for a New Nation"
With South Sudan: a new history for a new nation, Douglas Johnson confirms his position as among the world's leading South Sudan scholars. As part of Ohio University Press's ‘Short Histories of Africa’ series, Johnson notes at the outset ‘the basic contradiction here of attempting to fit a longue durée history into a Short History series’ (p. 18). In his own words, the book is ‘no more than an introduction … offered to stimulate conversation, debate, and further research about South Sudan's past’ (p. 28). Johnson succeeds in his task.
