A new country, coming this weekend!

This Saturday a new country is coming into existence, the country of Southern Sudan. Your blogger read about it here in the English language edition of Der Spiegel. It hasn't made it into the atlases and encyclopedic sites like the CIA World Factbook yet, but in addition to the link to Der Spiegel above, library databases like Academic Search and Lexis would be good for magazine and newspaper articles. Facts on File has a great in depth report covering the Sudan and it's history in modern times, from the end of colonial rule in the 1950s to the upcoming debut of the new nation. We also have many books in our catalog on the Sudan. (Pictured here are members of the Sudan People's Liberation Movement.)
