The book gives African liberation voices, especially the chiefs and leaders of 1947 Juba Conference, the respect they deserve. The author castigates African Sudanese but presents them as dignified people whose traditional democracy and methodical problem solving ways have been hellenized and the people projected as uncultured and uncivilized. The book therefore presents a flawed yet dignified and uniquely civilized humanity. The rejection of the parochial Arabic and European understanding of civilization marks the tone of the book. Many scholars, foreigners and South Sudanese alike, have written extensively about South Sudan. However, these books present the events and affecting ideologies in an unhelpful manner. Some South Sudan scholars present ideologies and events in a manner that respects their partisan and tribal point of view. Yet others present issues with European lenses. Foreign scholars, whove written about South Sudan, have some hidden condescending undertone. These books therefore do no justice to the ingenious and wise traditional African ways in history, during 1947 Juba conference and to the present. This is where South Sudan Ideologically comes in.
