Overview

This third edition focuses on the Sudan in Islamic times from the 14th century to the present. There is more on the sultanates of Sinnar and Dar Fur, the Mahdiya, and the history of Islam in the Sudan, especially the chronology and analysis of significant events of the past decade, which has seen a radical Islamist movement in power in Khartoum. This revised Dictionary contains new sections built upon the recent proliferation of literature on women in the Sudan, minority and human rights, Islamism, opposition movements, and refugees and exiles from the Sudan. A comprehensive reference and research tool for undergraduate students and generalist researchers.

American Reference Books Annual
An extensive update...a solid and much-needed reference source...No institution that supports African studies can afford to be without this volume.
MESA Bulletin
More than just an update. At the heart of the new edition are more than one hundred entirely new entries, - this book teems with information about the Sudan's past and present and, like the original, is an invaluable reference tool.
H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online
Certainly, all reference libraries as well as large general ones will require this volume, that is an improvement on its predecessors, and bibliophile scholars of the Sudan for their personal libraries
Journal Of African History
The breadth will be welcomed.

The third edition focuses on the period following the rise of Islam in the Sudan in the 14th century (the earlier period will appear in a forthcoming volume on Ancient Nubia), with extensive coverage of political events since the civil war and establishment of Islamic Shari'a law in 1983 and the radical Islamic movements of the 1990s. In addition to the dictionary itself, a chronology, maps, and lengthy (44-page) introduction to the history of the Sudan are provided. Two of the authors teach anthropology at Rhode Island College, the third teaches African and Middle Eastern History at St. Norbert College. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
