Abstract:Economics, a theme responsible for centuries of war in southern Sudan, has given rise to violence and death on a large scale. In response, the peoples of Sudan have redefined their identities. Thus, the papers of this collective volume are presented under the headings of Economy (Part I), Violence (Part II) and Identity (Part III). Contributions: (I) E.

Majak on environmental destruction and ethnic cleansing in the White Nile Basin; J. Prendergast on food relief in Sudan; G.R. Warburg on Egyptian-Sudanese relations, 1956-1995; (II) S. Beswick on female leadership in southern Sudan (1700-1994); H. Marcus on the Anglo-Ethiopian campaign against the Italians, 1941-1942; F.
