Summary
Ioan Lewis details history and culture of the Somali people, providing a window into this culture and its increasingly public predicaments. He provides insight into complex social, historical, and cultural Somali heritage and pays attention to pervasive influence of traditional nomadism, especially its extremely decentralized nature. He addresses developments in Somali political region since collapse of the Republic in 1991, including formation and steady development of the democratic state of Somaliland a self-governing outpost of democracy which is still officially unrecognized internationally. Lewis concludes with discussion of the Islamist movement that brought a brief but astonishing period of stability to much of Southern Somalia in late 2006--Publisher's description
