Imperial Sudan completes a study of the formative colonial period during which Britain and Egypt ruled the country. The previous volume, the acclaimed Empire on the Nile: The Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, 1898-1934, appeared in 1986. The current book takes the narrative to independence in 1956 and thus, with Empire, constitutes the first comprehensive survey of the political and economic history of the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan. Dr Daly examines the structure of the colonial regime, its role in Anglo-Egyptian relations, and the development of Sudanese nationalist politics during the inter-war years. He surveys economic and social developments, including government finance and development policy, transport and communications, agricultural production, and social services. He reveals the Sudan's important role in the Second World War, when the Sudan Defence Force held back Italian invasion. The complicated path to self-government and self-determination, which culminated in independence in 1956, is explained in great detail. The book ends with the transfer of power, and the author reflects on the legacy of the Condominium.

Review:

Imperial Sudan completes the first published survey of the formative colonial period (1898-1956), during which Britain and Egypt ruled the country. The previous volume, Empire on the Nile (1987), was widely acclaimed, and in this final volume, Dr. Daly has once again exploited a wealth of previously unused archival sources in the Sudan, Britain and the United States, to give a comprehensive picture of the political and economic history of the period. The book provides valuable insight into the workings of colonial administration and explains the background essential for understanding the current crises in the Horn of Africa. -- Book Description
