About this book

Integrates findings about the ways in which the Turkana's social and cultural organization, health, biology, demography, and economic practices enable them to survive in a difficult and uncertain environment. At a time when the Kenyan Turkana find their way of life increasingly under threat from political and business interests seeking to develop their lands, this book is an important analytical record of their lifestyle.
