This is the front page of a new book on Sudanese ethics. The book was published in 2008 by the Epistemological Enlightenment Centre - the Tanweer Centre - in Khartoum. The Tanweer Centre is a social science centre which was established in 2003. Amongst other things, the centre publishes a journal with the title Tanweer (four issues annually). The last two issues deal with ethics and the concept of freedom.

The new book is the result of a workshop on "Sudanese Ethics from an Outsider's Perspective". More precisely, the subject which was discussed was my work on Sudanese ethics in the 1960s (Sudanese Ethics, 1968; also available in Arabic, 1996). The director of the centre, Professor Mohamed A. Alnagarabi, who has kindly sent me the book, also writes that they are planning to translate it into English.

My new year's wish is that this will happen so that the contents of this book will be available to interested readers (like myself) who don't read Arabic.
