Sudan: The Land and the People is the first illustrated book to depict the whole of the country. In text and images, this volume not only illuminates the difficulties confronting Sudanese but also highlights the enormous and often overlooked economic and human potential of the country.
In a trio of essays, authors Timothy Carney and Victoria Butler focus on Sudan's history, land, and people. The authors clearly recount the country's more recent past, putting Sudan's modern conflicts in historical context. A chapter on the physical landscape draws attention to the dominant influence of the Nile River on Sudanese peoples, culture, and economy. A final essay explores the rich blend of African and Arab peoples and cultures that give Sudanese society its great diversity as well as its turbulence.
Bringing all of Sudan to life are the images of photographer Michael Freeman, who traveled the length and breadth of the country over a period of two years. His photographs illustrate a grand, vast geography from savannahs and swamps to rocky hills and desert. He visited all the major towns in every region and some villages that no Westerner had seen in decades.
