Hilde F. Johnson _Waging Peace in Sudan

Sudan is at a crossroads. A referendum on independence for Southern Sudan is now on the way. The country could soon witness one of the first partitions of an African state since the colonial era.
Waging Peace in Sudan shows how the longest civil war in Africa was finally brought to an end. The agreement between the government of Sudan and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement and Army (SPLM/A) was achieved with the intense engagement of the 'Troika' of the U.S., U.K., and Norway.
Norwegian Minister of International Development Hilde F. Johnson had unique access to the parties and played an instrumental role in the negotiations. As former Secretary General of the UN, Kofi Annan, says in the Foreword of the book, Hilde stands out for her tireless efforts to help bring the protagonists together.
Waging Peace in Sudan describes this process from a unique, insider perspective. As Sudan faces the most decisive period in its history, this book is indispensable reading.
The book is available from this week on Amazon and B&N.
