The author of this life story, Prof Martin Marial Takpiny, requires little introduction to many South Sudanese readers. Now a retired senior citizen in Australia as well of his native South Sudan; the son of a traditional Dinka chief; school teacher; former legislator; provincial commissioner; twice a political detainee; university don; and finally, an internally displaced person, together with his family, the author has seen it all: bad and good days, glory and humiliation, pain and happiness, at different times and places during his many years as a public servant; an era characterised by turbulence caused by Sudan’s brutal and long civil wars of 1955-1972 and 1983- 2005. The two armed conflicts pitted the insurgents from what is today sovereign South Sudan against the central government in Khartoum which they accused of exercising a system of rule based on exclusion and discrimination based on creed and race.
