A dramatic narrative of the late-nineteenth-century conflict between Victorian Britain and Sudanese Moslems documents how Egypt's despotic ruler, Khedive Ismail, set the stage for the uprising by draining his nation's resources and setting in motion a series of events that were mistaken by the Islamic people as an attempt to establish an African-Christian empire. 35,000 first printing.
