Somalis: In Search of Nationhood, Statehood and Transnational Connections

by A Osman Farah

Contemporary scholarship characterizes Somalia as a nation in search of statehood. The approach presupposes a homogenous cohesive nation and society- with considerable traditional democratic pastoralism. This book portrays a complex nation with multiple heterogeneous characteristics. This alternative approach reflects the socio-political and the historical formations, invention and possible reinvention of the society.
