Pastoral Sedentarisation, Natural Resource Management, and Livelihood Diversification in Marsabit District, Northern Kenya
2008 0-7734-5043-2
This study shows how mainstream academic thinking on pastoralism still largely ignores the developments within pastoral societies themselves, and why contrasting the mobility paradigm and sedentarisation polices is unfruitful. It argues for a redefinition of ‘pastoralism’ as a production system and as a social identity marker. This book contains fourteen color photographs.

Sold only as a two-book set.
