International African Institute (1) • Published In 1955 • Pages: ix, 200

By: Lewis, I. M..

Abstract
This is an important work on the Somali. Sections are included on demography, physical environment, economics, socio-political organization, the life-cycle, material culture, religion, etc. There is an exhaustive bibliography. Lewis, a British social anthropologist, wrote this survey before going to Somalia; it contains, therefore, none of his own field data.
