About this book

Eastern African pastoralists often present themselves as being egalitarian, equating cattle ownership with wealth. poverty is thus confined to non-pastoralist, socially excluded groups. This collection rejects the premise of pastoral egalitarianism and poses questions about the gradual creep of poverty, changing patterns of wealth and accumulation, the impact of diminishing resources on pastoral communities and the impact of external values of land, labour and livestock.
