Power and Democracy in the Sudan: How Decentralization Hurts
The Title and Sub-Title of the book are, themselves the briefest of
"teaser" synopsis. DEMOCRACY AND POWER IN THE SUDAN: How
Decentralization Hurts Politically, "Decentralization"
should be a positive portion of democracy. However, where power
does tend to be absolute, decentralization is seen to be at
variance with the views of those who enjoy power. The book goes on
to state how most African politicians have wrongly conceived the
idea of nationalism, hence, creating a misunderstanding around
tribal sentiments they call "tribalism." Tribalism is, in
fact, a portion of nationalism at the tribal level. Such sentiments
deserve their place in any democracy, rather than to be smeared.
