Abstract

In this text, scholars of African pastoralist societies present overviews of their fields of specialisation and in-depth analyses of their research data. The discussions stress the interrelationships among differing social, economic, ecological and biological aspects of African pastoralism. The first section of the book focuses on social and historial processes, the second on biological perspectives and the third on development and economic change. In a final chapter, the editors synthesise the authors' key themes to reflect on the past, present and future status of African pastoral systems.
