9780881332070: Nomads of South Persia: The Basseri Tribe of the Khamseh Confederacy

In this thorough analysis, Barth explores the features of and the economic, social, and political adaptations to the nomadic, pastoral existence of this tent-dwelling population: the drama of herding and migration; the idleness of a pastoral existence where the herds satisfy the basic needs of man; the freedom, or necessity, of movement through a vast, barren landscape.
