Overview

Written by one of the most distinguished ethnographers of African cultures, this edition updates 30 years of research and writing. Middleton’s sensitive account dramatizes how this complex sociopolitical society, once reliant on feud or warfare to control competition, became refugees of harassment and victims of famine.

John Middleton, Yale University
