A Modern History of the Somali · Nation and State in the Horn of Africa
By I. M. Lewis

This latest edition of A Modern History of the Somali brings I. M. Lewis's definitive history up to date and shows the amazing continuity of Somali forms of social organization. Lewis's history portrays the ingeniousness with which the Somali way of life has been adapted to all forms of modernity.

“Lewis writes authoritatively, magisterially, and often brilliantly.”
