Abstract:
Compilation of papers for a workshop held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and Jinja, Uganda on issues facing pastoral and agro-pastoral societies. The contributors discuss pastoral societies in the sub-region and question the long-term viability of such communities in the context of various development efforts. The book states that the predicament of the East African pastoralists is not dependent solely on the state of the range on which they live, and on the quality of their animals, but rather on a series of dynamics that reaches far beyond the limits of the pastoral communities themselves. But at the same time, local factors, range and animals alike, make up important premises for the continuation of pastoralism as a particular mode of various interrelationships between the local factors and various types of external factors that together shape the contemporary reality of East African pastoralists.
