Welfare economics and African pastoralism. A southern African literature review of socio-economic features arising from traditional cattle ownership and production

Welfare economics and African pastoralism. A southern African literature review of socio-economic features arising from traditional cattle ownership and production

Monograph, Institute of Natural Resources, University of Natal (3): (i) + 28

These features have been condemned by agricultural administrators as resulting from conservative, traditional and economically irrational behaviour.
