Nada Mustafa Ali is faculty fellow in the Center for Governance and Sustainability at the University of Massachusetts, Boston.
Riveting with theoretically informed and empirically founded critical analysis of the futility of male-centered discourses and practices endorsed by leaders purportedly leading national liberation struggles and state-building institutions in Sudan and South Sudan.
A timely book by a committed intellectual and professional academic and a must read for young African change agents striving to avoid historic setbacks of failed ruling elites in sub-Saharan Africa.
— Atta El-Battahani, University of Khartoum
Nada Ali's detailed, fine-tuned feminist analysis has opened my eyes to Sudanese women activists' years of deep theorizing and sophisticated strategizing. I urge anyone trying to make sense of the gendered politics of social movements, of nationalism or of contemporary patriarchy to read this smart, engaging book.
