About this title

Synopsis:

Beginning with the Sahelian drought of the 1970s, through the complex succession of catastrophes in Ethiopia, and continuing tragedies of Somalia and the Southern Sudan, the plights of Africa's more than 30 million migratory pastoralists receive bursts of international television coverage and emergency aid, yet the underlying problems within their largely marginal lands remain unresolved. Virtually all past approaches and specific attempts at development among them have failed. A prominent problem has been inabilities of involved persons within diverse disciplines to communicate effectively with one another and to cooperate. In addressing this continent-wide problem, the authors adopt a practical approach and provide sufficient detail to illustrate its likelihood to achieve positive results within the severe constraints of available resources and other current realities. They propose, for the first time, meaningful and realistic possibilities for bettering the lives of these numerous peoples in ways they themselves would desire.

Book Description:

Majok and Schwabe offer a refreshingly practical approach to the overwhelming problems of Africa's tens of millions of migratory pastoralists inhabiting mostly arid and semiarid areas of the continent. Their proposals uniquely reflect the perspective of a pastoralist himself and integrate positive ideas from diverse disciplines for multipurpose outreach and communications.
