After decades of civil war, the Republic of South Sudan gained independence on July 9, 2011. But despite all efforts to build a state peacefully, the first decade of statehood takes a violent course: in December 2013, South Sudan slides into a bloody civil war, which does not develop as a uniform conflict with clearly definable parties, but rather as an amalgam of complex, nested conflict landscapes. In analytical vignettes that examine different regions as well as the national and international dimensions of the civil war, Jan Pospisil provides an insight into the reality of the South Sudanese conflict.
