This book is a reference work about the study of oases in the context of globalization. It is based on selected papers presented at the international colloquium entitled Oases in the Globalization, Ruptures and Continuities in Paris (December 16-17th, 2013). The main issue was to understand how oases have been excluded from or included into the process of globalization.
In this context, the present book proposes firstly a discussion about the definition(s) of oasis and secondly several case studies analysing socio-spatial mutations in the oasis structure. The third part deals with the compelling globalization at different spatial scales, using two entries: the water management and local impacts of external control.Introduction .- Part I The genesis of the oases in South East Arabia.- The Southern-Tunisian oases paradox: renovation or death of a concept.- Real and imaginary oases in the Arabic world.- Part II Marginalization and spatial reversal.- Spatial reorganization of piedmont oases of the Peruvian coast.- Insular Oases in the Globalization: the Ribeiras of Cape Verde Archipelago, fragmented and fragile Spaces on the Way of Marginalization.- Liwa: the transformation of an agricultural oasis in a strategic water storage for Abu Dhabi.- The mutation of the Oases of Mendoza (Argentina)  Or how the oases socio-spatial structures have been reversed by the 2000s crisis.- Part III Global control at different temporal scales Water management as main actor.- The Oasis of the Chicama Valley: Water Management from the Chim? to the Spaniards (11th to 17th A.D.) in the North Coast of Peru.- Changing agricultural practices in the oases of southern Tunisia: conflict and competition for resources in post-revolutionary and globalization context.- Who controls the oasis?
