Labor, livestock, and land: the organization of pastoral production

Labor, livestock, and land: the organization of pastoral production

African pastoralist systems: an integrated approach: 91-112

This chapter discusses problems of pastoral production shared cross-culturally by many African pastoralist groups but focuses on variations of household production experienced within one particular community of pastoralists, the Ariaal of northern Kenya.
