Editorial Reviews


“Development is not all about money. Reducing conflict and increasing human security are among the greatest challenges of humankind. In this important book, the authors provide detailed accounts of community life in Northern Kenya, including the historical context, organization of property and work, cultural practices, human rights, and problem solving. The research is intensive and examples are illuminating. Insights and lessons apply broadly. This book is valuable as an educational resource, and it informs practices and policies on the ground.”—Michael Sherraden, Youngdahl Professor of Social Development and Director, Center for Social Development, Washington University in St. Louis
