Based on fieldwork largely collected during the CPA interim period by Sudanese and European researchers, the volume sheds light on the dynamics of change and the relationship between microscale and macroscale processes which took place in Sudan between the 1980s and the independence of South Sudan in 2011. Contributors' various disciplinary approaches - socio-anthropology, geography, politics, history, linguistic - focus on the general issue of "access to resources." The book analyzes major transformations which affected Sudan in the framework of globalization, including land and urban issues; water management; "new" actors and "new conflicts"; and language, identity and ideology.
