South Sudan's Endless Sorrows, a new book by Lul Gatkuoth Gatluak, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

In depth, comprehensive, and extensively researched, South Sudan's Endless Sorrows chronicles the complex history of South Sudan and its long, bitter struggle for freedom. South Sudan's long battle with colonization and invasion of foreign powers began as early as the twelfth century and has continued up until the twentieth century, when the struggle for liberation came to a long period of bloody civil unrest and war. To this day, South Sudan still struggles to find its own identity, voice, and freedom. With a devout love of his homeland and the people he holds dear, Gatluak's history of South Sudan doubles as a heart-wrenching plea for intervention, compromise, and peace in the country that has been ransacked by violence for centuries.
