Part of the Documents and Debates book series (DD)

Abstract

The Fashoda Crisis marks the closing stages of the scramble for Africa. Most of Africa (with the exception of Abyssinia and Liberia) was under European rule, and armed conflict between the colonising Powers had been avoided. In 1898 Britain and France found themselves on the brink of conflict over the remote and unconquered Southern Sudan.
