This book has, from its first publication, been an essential reference tool for research of any aspect of society, history and culture in this part of Africa. Originally published in 1955 as part of the International African Institute's landmark Ethnographic Survey of Africa series, it was reprinted in 1969 with a new bibliography. This new edition contains further supplemental and previously unpublished material based on Professor Lewis' later field research on land-holding systems in the Somali reverine regions.
