Bedingungslose Unterstutzung des autoritaren Regimes, Menschenrechtsverletzungen, illegaler Waffenhandel und Neokolonialismus sind die gangigen Vorwurfe in Bezug auf Chinas Oldiplomatie im Sudan. Untergrabt diese strategische Partnerschaft das internationale System? Gilt China bei internationalen Herausforderungen wie der Konfliktlosung im Sudan als verlasslicher Partner? Fordert China eine nachhaltige Entwicklung? Ausgehend von den grundlegenden Strukturen der chinesischen Aussen-, Wirtschafts-, Energie- und Sicherheitspolitik zeichnet die Autorin die unterschiedlichen Aspekte dieser vielfaltigen und besonders umstrittenen Beziehung nach. Sie zeigt die strategischen Interessen der Regierung und der Unternehmen Chinas sowie deren Konsequenzen auf. Dabei wird die chinesische Perspektive der ausserst kritischen westlichen und der afrikanischen Sicht gegenubergestellt."
"shows a biblical world of tranquility, harmony and simplicity", -- the Scotsman The soft, rich colours of these photographs show the Sudan at peace with itself, with views of green terraces, clear streams and distant mountains. Our preconceptions are gently pushed aside as Ribi re shows people's daily routines: winnowing sorghum, filling a water trough or grinding grain. Whether they be roofing a house in Juba, or plastering walls in Wudabi, the people of Sudan work for their homes and will continue to do so long after the current tragedy.

The involvement of an Australian colonial military force in Britain’s Egyptian campaigns between 1883 and 1885 was very short, extending for only five months overall, including the pre-deployment phase. Consequently its influence on those campaigns was insignificant. Nevertheless, our involvement in the Sudan in 1885 is part of Australia’s military history. This book provides the context for Australia’s involvement in the Sudan, and follows operations chronologically. The call in the 1880s for jihad or ‘holy war’ by Sudanese leaders shows us that some of our current global challenges are not new. Sending the contingent has been seen as the first important expression of colonial commitment to the imperial cause in the nineteenth century. In Australia, politicians were alive to their own colonies coming-of-age, and the conflict in the Sudan afforded an opportunity to demonstrate colonial maturity to an imperial audience across the globe. Despite other Australian colonies wanting to make a military contribution, only New South Wales actually deployed any troops. It did so because it had the largest and best organised defence force, and was led by a very opportunist politician. However one looks at it, Britain’s experience in the Sudan in the 1880s comprised political indecision, expensive deployments and military defeats, followed by the withdrawal of Egyptian and imperial forces. British arms would not secure a victory there until 1898. The deployment to the Sudan represents Australia’s first real military engagement aboard. It helped set the precedent for the Australian colonies’ role, attitudes and engagement in the second Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902) and the Boxer Rebellion of 1900.
