This book is a remarkable story of the South Sudanese struggle. It appears at a critical time in our history, as our political and social concerns are further mitigated by the eminent threat to our communities safety and survival. The present crisis of war, economic down-turns, human rights violations, state fragility, and Internal-displaced Persons (IDPs) in the country has reached a critical point. The beauty of this book is that it has also provided details of local solutions through the real intellectual experience and exposure of Biong, Logan, and their contributors. To those interested in the South Sudanese story - I highly recommend this book. - Professor Julia Duany, Vice Chancellor of Dr. John Garang Memorial University of Science and Technology
