Description

In the introduction to Soldiering in Sudan’s Civil War to Australia’s Law School, Lual Alaak describes his book in his village’s childhood through to the daunting challenges of having to witness a civil war in his country of origin before he escaped to foreign lands. He explains his strong relationship with his people values, culture and beliefs in form of villagers serving African Adder with cow molten butter to appease it to his days at cattle camps where boys and girls would be seen busy stimulating vulva for a cow which had an abortion to induce the production of milk. Having been an eye witness to awaking socio-economic and political revolution of his country, and a potential recruit of the guerrilla movement of Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army, his humble submission to studies as an adult took him from Kenya to law school in Australia which later puts him at never expected edge of his dream. As a boy among the boys without a sister, he underscores the benefits of hard work as equivalent to flow of dowry in a traditional Dinka family where girls were considered as valuable assets of the olden days. He has continued to act as spectator of religious transformation from the diminishing of their backyard local deities to outburst of Dinka’s Christianity. Throughout his Soldiering, he could not distinguish the existing relationship between his village of Aliet and that of meaningful life in the cattle camp, a combined experience which shaped his wider understanding of the two worlds from star shone village of Aliet to that world of electricity and information communication.
