First published in 1914, this revised edition highlights administrative boundaries. Though technically administered jointly by Egypt and Britain between 1899 and 1956, today’s Sudan and South Sudan were effectively ruled as a Crown Colony. The Sudan Political Service, often considered the elite of the British colonial civil servants in Africa, never employed more than 150 Europeans at once.
