The conflict over the identity of Sudan
produced two contradictory ideological
visions for what Sudan represented. The
development of political organizations in
South Sudan during the period 1920s-1972 is
the history that this book attempts to relate.
It is a history of political ideas that were later
on transformed into political and military
organizations, each on its own ways tried to
achieve what was the core of conflict that is
political and socio-economic identity for the
people of South Sudan.
