    Abstract

    Book synopsis: The dominant trend in pastoralist studies has long assumed that pastoralism and pastoral gender relations are inherently patriarchal. The contributors to this collection, in contrast, use diverse analytic approaches to demonstrate that pastoralist genderrelations are dynamic, relational, historical and produced through complex local-translocal interactions. Combining theoretically sophisticated analysis with detailed case studies, this collection should appeal to those doing research and teaching in African studies, gender studies, anthropology and history.
