Editorial Reviews


"Provide[s] a richly detailed description and a nuanced analysis of the changing dynamics and politics of being a Berber in post-independence North Africa." —Aomar Boum, University of Arizona

(Aomar Boum, University of Arizona)

"Berbers and Others... brings together some of the very best of the new generation of scholars working on Berber issues from a variety of perspectives... both North Africanists and all those interested in the nexus between ethnicity, culture, politics, and history, will derive much benefit and pleasure from this elegant and informed volume." —H-Africa, June 2011

(H-Africa 2011-01-00)

"Hoffman and Miller have done a real service to the anthropology of North Africa by bringing these articles together. Any work done on Berbers in the future will stand on the shoulders of this excellent collection." —Anthropos
