Summary
"Combining extensive field research from West Africa to the Horn with findings culled from American and European museum archives, Labelle Prussin and the book's other contributors - including Peter A. Andrews, Uta Holter, Anders Grum, Amina H. Adan, and Arlene Fullerton - offer insights into the daily life of African nomads whose material culture is shaped by their desert environment. The more than two hundred diagrams, plans, and photographs in the text illustrate some of the regional variation in architectural style, extending from the tensile structures of West Africa to the mat-covered armature frames built by East African nomads. Two dozen color images highlight the most striking architectural examples and their surroundings."--Jacket
