Discussion of the border between Sudan and South Sudan has focused on the question of where the boundary line is to be drawn. When Boundaries Become Borders examines a different, but equally important issue: the potential impact of the new boundary on the peoples of the borderlands and political developments at the local level. In a comprehensive survey of archival sources and current research, the study summarizes the history and present situation of the communities each side of the north-south boundary, and the existing international borders of South Sudan. When Boundaries Become Borders is available from the RVI website as a free-to-download digital edition, or as a print-on-demand edition from all local Amazon sites. An Arabic version is also available.
