It's the most urgent and arguable questions of our time -- vehemently debated, steeped in ideology, profoundly divisive. Who may be allowed to immigrate and who now not? What are the arguments for and opposed to proscribing the numbers? we're supposedly a kingdom of immigrants, and but our guidelines mirror deep anxieties and the quirks of temporary self-interest, with powerful laws snagging on thousand-mile-long safety fences and the query of ways lengthy and exhausting the trail to citizenship can be.

From this basis, I consider the effect on structures of inequality within the village. The emergence of a class structure is not yet clear, but there are nascent classes with obvious conflicts of interest that will play a part in future political processes. Page 14 2. 1). Dar Masalit, "home of the Masalit," is separated from the rest of Sudan by the Jebel Marra range, and even its rivers drain into Lake Chad rather than the Nile. Geneina, its capital, is connected by road to El Fasher and Nyala, but the trip takes at least two days and is impossible for several months each year.
I am also grateful to the Institute of African and Asian Studies of the University of Khartoum, with which I was an associate while carrying out this research. I am particularly grateful to Edgar V. Winans for stimulation and challenge from the earliest stages of planning until the present, including extensive comments on drafts of this manuscript. Dorene R. Tully has helped me understand many central issues, and painstakingly criticized drafts of these chapters. Lidwien Kapteijns has provided valuable discussion, both during and after field research, and has commented on draft chapters; her work in Dar Masalit sets a high standard to follow.
An exclusive focus on local culture may not explain those features that are responses to external economic and political forces; on the other hand, study of world-scale processes does not explain the tremendous diversity of local responses and initiatives that have been observed (Cooper 1981; Comaroff 1984). Macro-level approaches rarely analyze units smaller than the nation, which leaves a serious gap between the study of local cultures and their global context. It is necessary to try to do both, in concrete case studies, to test the relevance of anthropological models in explaining change, and to see if world market incorporation is a relevant concept at the local level.
