Sudan: Old wine in new bottles

Makinda, S.M. (1987) Sudan: Old wine in new bottles. Orbis, Summer . pp. 217-228.


The article discusses the political and economic system of Sudan. The country's politics have changed dramatically since President Ja'far an-Numayri was overthrown by a military coup on April 6, 1985. Numayri's successor, General Swareddahab chaired a Transitional Military Council which served as his primary power base. Sudan's enormous debt problem compelled the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank to intervene in the country's financial management. According to the author, the internal problems in Sudan and realignments in the regional equation suggest that U.S. diplomacy must readjust to accommodate the changes.
