"A Rope From The Sky"
"A hugely important contribution to the debate about one of Africa’s longest-running tragedies." That's how Lord (Chris) Patten of Barnes CH PC, Chancellor of the University of Oxford, describes Book 4 in our suggested reading list inspired by this year's Refugee Week event.
"A Rope from the Sky: The Making and Unmaking of the World's Newest State" by Zach Vertin is "a brilliant, authoritative, and colourful insight into the hope and despair that is the world’s youngest country. Unique in modern history, this untold story of South Sudan’s birth carries lessons not just for Africa but for the rest of the world." (Jon Snow).
