Customary Commerce: A Historical Reassessment of Pastoral Livestock Marketing in Africa

Book/book chapter

Pastoralists have often been regarded as reluctant to market their livestock. Drawing on historical case studies of the Samburu and Maasai of Kenya and the pastoral Fulani of Nigeria and Niger from the pre-colonial period until the years following Independence, the author challenges this view, showing how different colonial livestock marketing policies have affected pastoral trade.
