Sudan Travel Information


Sudan Flag The Republic of Sudan is a country in northeastern Africa. Until 2011, in terms of land area, it was the largest country both in Africa, and in the Arab world, however in that year, after years of civil war, and a referendum, the southern part of the country seceded and became the new nation of South Sudan.

Today, Sudan shares borders with the Central African Republic, Chad, Ethiopia, Egypt, Eritrea, and South Sudan, as well as having a coastline on the Red Sea.

Probably the best estimate of the current population of Sudan comes from the 2008, census, although the figures have been disputed. According to the census, the population was 30,894,000.

The capital of Sudan is Khartoum, which is located at the confluence of the White Nile and the Blue Nile. As of 2005, about 2,207,794 people lived in the urban area, with a total of around 11 million people living in the city's metropolitan area.

The largest city of Sudan is Omdurman, which is located on the west bank of the Nile, opposite Khartoum. Omdurman is the principal commercial, cultural and industrial center of the country. As of 2008, Omdurman had a population of 2,395,159.

Product Description:
Robert D. Kaplan is one of our leading international journalists, someone who can explain the most complicated and volatile regions and show why they’re relevant to our world. In Surrender or Starve, Kaplan illuminates the fault lines in the Horn of Africa, which is emerging as a crucial region for America’s ongoing war on terrorism.

Reporting from Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, and Eritrea, Kaplan examines the factors behind the famine that ravaged the region in the 1980s, exploring the ethnic, religious, and class conflicts that are crucial for understanding the region today. He offers a new foreword and afterword that show how the nations have developed since the famine, and why this region will only grow more important to the United States. Wielding his trademark ability to blend on-the-ground reporting and cogent analysis, Robert D. Kaplan introduces us to a fascinating part of the world, one that it would behoove all of us to know more about.
