Editorial Reviews

“In their continuing struggle for freedom and independence from colonial rule the Somali people have confronted a situation that is without parallel elsewhere in Africa…. Thus, in contrast to the rest of Africa where states are struggling to become nations, teh Somali people represent a nation struggling to become a state…. I.M. Lewis brings unique and outstanding qualifications to the detailed narrative of these events.”—Frank J. Mahony, American Anthropologist
