PUTTING THE CART BEFORE THE HORSE: Inverted Nationalism and the Crisis of Identity in Somalia

ISBN: 1569022038

Challenging the assumption that a common culture can form the basis for national solidarity, this volume considers the interpretive conflict between lineage-based and territorial paradigms of national identity in Somalia. Sample topics include the links between nationalism and local economic circumstances; nationalist resistance movements in southern Somalia; and changing gender roles among Somalis in exile. A diverse group of contributors includes academics representing a range of disciplines as well as a journalist and a civil engineer. Kusow teaches sociology at Oakland U. in Michigan.
