Janet J. Ewald is Associate Professor of History at Duke University. Her articles on African history have appeared in a variety of scholarly journals. That is exactly what Janet Ewald has demonstrated in this book

Janet J. That is exactly what Janet Ewald has demonstrated in this book. The book puts Tagali Kingdom and the Nuba Mountains at its centre and then views vividly from that perspective the changing roles of the three main agents of change, namely, soldiers, Traders and slaves, and how they shaped up the history of the whole region. For me, this is one of the most interesting books that have ever been written on the history of Sudan.

Ewald shows how events originating far beyond the Taqali massif allowed local Muslim soldiers to become kings of the Taqali in the eighteenth century and then to hold on to their power. But the nature of that power was shaped by the highland farmers who stubbornly and largely successfully resisted the efforts of the kings to parlay their control over the means of production.

In the Nuba hills, on the frontiers of the Islamic Sudan, a dynasty of Muslim warrior kings arose in the 18th century. Their kingdom, Taqali, survived as an independent state, resisting conquest by larger empires and coming under external control only during the 20th century.

Associate Professor with Tenure . The book, as well as several articles, analyzes not only how people constructed a small kingdom but also how they continually reconstructed their memories of that kingdom. Following the paths of slaves from the Nile valley led me to the shores of the Indian Ocean and beyond.

In the Nuba Hills, on the frontiers of the Islamic Sudan, a dynasty of Muslim warrior kings arose in the eighteenth century.  Their kingdom, Taqali, survived as an independent state, resisting conquest by larger empires, and coming under external control only during the twentieth century.  Janet Ewald has written the first comprehensive account of the origins and development of the Taqali kingdom.    Ewald shows how events originating far beyond the Taqali massif allowed local Muslim soldiers to become kings of the Taqali in the eighteenth century and then to hold on to their power.  But the nature of that power was shaped by the highland farmers who stubbornly and largely successfully resisted the efforts of the kings to parlay their control over the means of production.  In this struggle religion became an ideological weapon on both sides, as the Taqali farmers asserted their local beliefs against their Muslim rulers.  Political confrontations also bore unintended economic consequences.  Ewald's account of Taqali challenges current views on the impact of Islam, merchant capitalism, and Egyptian military administration in nineteenth-century Sudan.
