Write The First Customer Review

This study of the nomadic peoples of Africa principally draws a distinction between state forming nomadic pastoralists, and those who lived in more decentralised structures who were more likely to become marginalized in the imposed colonial systems. In raising this issue the book also makes clear the distinction between nomadism and pastoralism and emphasises the dramatic differences and changes in ethno-cultural identity of individual groups.
