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.
