As the title illustrates, the book is a story of war and peace talks
that culminated in Agreement on the Confl ict Resolution
in South Sudan (ARCSS) in July 2015 and its final version
of September 2018 known as Revitalized Agreement on Conflict
Resolution in South Sudan (R-ARCSS). It emanates from the inside
personal experience of the author who served as a frontline negotiator
representing the SPLM/A (IO) from Addis-Ababa Peace Talks to High
Revitalization Forum in Addis-Ababa, Ethiopia and up to the face to
Face phase in Khartoum, Sudan. Based on his own grasping of the
the entire peace process, the author provides in-depth analysis of issues
discussed to resolve the conflict as well as critical reflections on the
the diplomatic atmosphere under which the talks were conducted in Addis
-Ababa, Arusha, Entebbe and in Khartoum. In sum, the book is largely
a story of violent armed conflict, intransigence, tyranny of gun culture
and lack of political will to resolve the devastating five years civil strife
in South Sudan.
