Revue de presse

Natsios provides a clear and dispassionate general introduction to the country's history and politics, designed for the lay reader ... The book's main achievement, though, is to succinctly explain Sudan's history of conflict and violence. (Nicolas van de Walle, Foreign Affairs)

an enlightening first port of call for those who wish to know more about this region. (Andrew S. Natsios, Times Literary Supplement)

Présentation de l'éditeur

For thirty years Sudan has been a country in crisis, wracked by near-constant warfare between the north and the south. But on July 9, 2011, South Sudan became an independent nation. As Sudan once again finds itself the focus of international attention, former special envoy to Sudan and director of USAID Andrew Natsios provides a timely introduction to the country at this pivotal moment in its history. Focusing on the events of the last 25 years, Natsios sheds light on the origins of the conflict between northern and southern Sudan and the complicated politics of this volatile nation. He gives readers a first-hand view of Sudan's past as well as an honest appraisal of its future. In the wake of South Sudan's independence, Natsios explores the tensions that remain on both sides. Issues of citizenship, security, oil management, and wealth-sharing all remain unresolved. Human rights issues, particularly surrounding the ongoing violence in Darfur, likewise still clamor for solutions. Informative and accessible, this book introduces readers to the most central issues facing Sudan as it stands on the brink of historic change.

This book is a sharp and concise description of the war and peace processes in Sudan, yet it is very rich, well documented, with personal insights from the author who lived there as a key player for some time. Andrew Natsios does a great job and the book contains everything people need to know about this issue, as announced on the front cover. I would have emphasized more the key watershed event when the SPLA blew up the pipeline in 2001, which taught Al Bashir some key parameters of the game, and led him to seek for peace. Like most American analysts, Natsios emphasizes too much the role played by George W. Bush in the peace process, while he underestimates the fact that the blown up pipeline convinced Al Bashir that cooperating with the SPLA was necessary for him to reap the benefits of oil production. Still, the book provides a lot of food for thought and must be read by all people interested in war and peace in Africa, as well as by the stability of the global oil market.

HASH(0x9405c324) étoiles sur 5 Better than the other reviews 18 juin 2012
Par Manfred Arcane - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Somewhat superficial given the extremely complex nature of the issues, it is a better book than some of these critics - who seem to have their own axes to grind - give it credit for. Natsios does know the players and the issues and has some important things to say about a volatile part of Africa.

HASH(0x9405c378) étoiles sur 5 cliff notes on sudan for neoconservatives 23 avril 2012
Par Mark bennett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Andrew Natsios was a big supporter in the Bush Administration of the war in Iraq. He was rather infamous at one point for claiming the entire US spending for reconstruction in Iraq would be 1.7 billion.

Like many of his kind, he sees the dismemberment and transformation of Sudan into a series of American client states as an important priority. The book is basically a primer that distills Sudan's complicated history down to a compact form representing one point of view. Its organized in the form of what looks like talking points - question and answer - for all aspects of all conflicts in Sudan.

His views on the capabilities and history of the SPLA (south sudan) border on the delusional. He far overrates them and the army of southern sudan that followed them. He makes a case late in the book that outsiders (i.e. the US) should pour weapons into South Sudan to help maintain what he considers a balance of power but would in fact be the opposite. He also highlights the lack of air power in the south which is probably a backhanded call to give them (or rent them) an air force. He also brags about his personal role during the Bush administration of establishing ties between South Sudan and the US military.

He claims at another point that South Sudan could become the african equivilent of an "asian tiger". His theory is based in part on a theory that Singapore prospered because it was threated by China under Mao.

Reading between the lines, the long-term plan is to equip the South Sudan army with enough weapons to allow it to go to war with Sudan and/or sponsor an insurgency within Sudan that will bring down its government.

It gets two stars because it does provide a peek behind the curtain into what these people are thinking and their motivations.
