Thk folloM ing important ohservatioiiH on this section have been received, since publication, from a member of the Iiistitiite who is partaeiilarly well qualified to make them:
Pages 233- 4: Islamic culture was still dominant in the Northern Sudan, after more than a quart ei' of a century of a partly British regime, not ‘ in spite of ’ that regime but in large measure owing to the deliberate policy of the Sudanese Government e.g. in the education given to the sons of Sudanese notables at Gordoii College.
Page 240: It should have been added that there was a large and important contingi nt of Syrian as well as Egyptian officials in the middle ranks of the Sudan Civil Service.
Page 243: In a comparison between the respective economic interests of Egypt and Great Britain in Uie Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, it should have been added that Lancashire was looking to the Sudan to make up the suplay of long staple cotton—a vital necessity for the Lancashire cotton industry which was in danger of running short owing to the progressive diminution in the yield per faddan in Egypt. This toll taken by politics from eonomics in Egypt was estimated at a minimum of 33 per cent, of the previous production.
