This chapter addresses the development of the colonial state and the construction of the colonial capital city, Khartoum, as well as its extensions as progressive forms of colonization and modes of control. Khartoum was the colonial city, the citadel, and the dual center of operation for British direct and indirect rule. Through these modes of control, the simultaneous operations of differential arrangements of identity management, which produced peoplehoods and differentiation as well as the country's different spheres of power, different Sudanese community-of-the-state groups developed and grew, working with each other as well as with other emerging social groups—with and against that state. They all worked as “intimate enemies” both to build and to impede the very existence of that state.

Keywords:   Khartoum colonial capital, Khartoum, Gordon Memorial College, colonizing Islam, peoplehood, colonial grid
