This volume concerns the herding peoples of the world's more arduous climes - dry plains and savannah, deserts and tundra, mountains and steppes - for whom domestic animals play a predominant role in shaping their lives. By juxtaposing case studies covering five continents, the editors present a view of both global variations in forms of livestock production and the profound commonalities that accompany a cultural economic focus on animal husbandry.
