Darfur and the British

RS O'Fahey

A Hurst Publication

  • This is the essential history of the British in Darfur (1916-56).
  • Darfur was unique in that it was a multi-ethnic African Muslim state in 1916, and the imperialists largely maintained the system inherited from the Sultans
  • The material described here, a combination of administrative practice and ethnographic reporting, is far from simply academic in importance, but is invaluable on such issues as land tenure, agricultural practice, grazing rights and livestock migration routes, tribal administration and compensation for injury and death.
