Actors in large-scale conflict are too often dismissed as being irrational. This only exacerbates the conflict and contributes to further instability and suffering. In order to demonstrate an understanding of conflict that can provide a foundation for conflict resolution, this paper examines the long history of and current conflict in the country of Sudan. This sociological-historical analysis is accomplished by focusing on themes of rational action, power, culture, capital, access to resources, domination and exploitation.
