Synopsis: Living in one of the most inhospitable and pitiless environments on earth, the Tuareg have been the guardians of the Sahara for more than a millennium, continuing a nomadic pastoralist lifestyle that has been traditional among their fellow Berbers for countless generations. Moving constantly across national borders they can be found in the present-day nations of Niger, Mali, Burkina Faso, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, and Libya. For much of their history, they controlled the lucrative caravan trading routes that linked the African interior with the markets of Europe and the rest of the world, but as colonialism upended power relationships throughout the region in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, their role—and their world—changed dramatically.

Yet as this visually stunning volume demonstrates, the Tuareg survived, and even retained their unique culture, language, traditions, and social structures. Telling the story of the Tuareg through incredible color photographs; historical materials; stories, myths, and songs; and contributions by scholars devoted to the history of the Tuareg, this celebration of a storied, yet frequently misunderstood people captures them in all all their majesty and magnificence.

About the Author: Henrietta Butler first encountered the Tuareg in Niger in 2001 as a Guardian photographer. She has continued to return to the area for the past fourteen years.

Book Description Unicorn Publishing Group, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Romanticised by nineteenth-century explorers as mysterious people of the veil , but with a reputation too as fearsome warriors, the nomadic Tuareg have been the guardians of the Sahara for over a thousand years. Surviving in one of the most pitiless and inhospitable terrains on earth, they controlled the lucrative caravan trading routes until nineteenth- and twentieth-century colonisation followed by twenty-first century global politics and the rise of political Islam, jihadism and terrorism fragmented their society and way of life. And yet the unique and distinctive Tuareg culture, with its ancient Tifinagh script and traditions of proverbs, poetry and song and strict behavioural codes, survives despite the pressures on this proud race. With an introduction by Robin Hanbury-Tenison, a preface by Justin Marozzi, and contributions from Ghoubeid Alojaly, Edmond Bernus,Suzanne Bernus, Henrietta Butler, Pierre Boilley, Henri Delord,Jean-Marc Durou, Berny Sebe, Akli Sh kka and Jeremy Swift. The photographer Henrietta Butler has masterminded and edited this volume and the accompanying Tuareg exhibition in London at The Royal Geographical Society in June 2015 She has assembled a team of renowned experts whose common theme is above all their passionate interest in these marginalised peoples who find their way of life and culture now so challenged.
