    The Manga is one of Africa's most wild and remote regions: a hostile and unforgiving landscape inhabited by nomads.

The Nomad's Path is a beautifully-rendered account of a journey across... more...

  • Ethnicity Kills?by Einar Braathen; Morten Bøås; Gjermund Saether

    Palgrave Macmillan 2000; US$ 205.00
