Abstract:Within the geographical context of the Sudanese Three Town agglomeration embracing Khartoum, Khartoum North, and Omdurman, the effects of the socio-historical process of class formation and urbanisation on patterns in the institutions of marriage are measured as barometers of wider social change. The basic hypothesis is that the rise of more complex systems of class stratification is associated with a decline of former patterns of endogamy. Notes, ref., tab.
