Behaviour in droughts and famines. The Kel Ewey Taureg: victims or actors?

Entwicklungshilfe und ihre Folgen: Ergebnisse empirischer Untersuchungen in Afrika: 97-117
Behaviour in droughts and famines. The Kel Ewey Taureg: victims or actors?
The causes of famine are discussed, distinguishing between periodic droughts, which can be expected, and those caused by sudden catastrophic events. The Taureg group studied here are accustomed to periodic droughts. They survive by caravan trading; purchasing salt and dates from 500 km across the eastern desert in October and then exchanging them for their staple food, millet, in Hausaland 900 km to the south, in December.
