This chapter examines the social circumstances surrounding Nubian resettlement. Rural resettlement has historically taken two forms. The first is one that was familiar during frontier days in the United States and more recently in new irrigated lands in western North America. In such cases, families have voluntarily chosen to leave their homes and jobs to take up life in a new region. The second form of resettlement comes about through circumstances beyond the control of the settlers. Government projects, particularly the building of dams, may flood occupied areas of land and force many people to give up their homes and farms. The argument for Nubian participation in the planning of their resettlement was strengthened by the fact that during and after relocation Egyptians were to be directly involved in Nubian affairs to a degree never before experienced in the modern history of either group.
