Abstract

This book sheds light on the indigenous principles of social organization – the centrality of women, male veiling and milk kinship – bringing positive feminist perspectives on how the Sahrawi have innovatively reconfigured their tribal nomadic pastoral society into globalizing citizen-nomads constructing their nascent nation state. This is essential reading for those interested in anthropology, politics, war and nationalism, gender relations, postcolonialism, international development, humanitarian regimes, refugee studies and the experience of nomadic communities.
