African landscapes interdisciplinary approaches by Michael Bollig ( )
14 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Landscape studies provide a crucial perspective into the interaction between humans and their environment.

Risk management in a hazardous environment a comparative study of two pastoral societies by Michael Bollig ( )
14 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A research focus on hazards, risk perception and risk minimizing strategies is relatively new in the social and environmental sciences. This volume by a prominent scholar of East African societies is a powerful example of this growing interest. Earlier theory and research tended to describe social and economic systems in some form of equilibrium. However recent thinking in human ecology, evolutionary biology, not to mention in economic and political theory has come to assign to "risk" a prominent role in predictive modeling of behavior. It turns out that risk minimalization is centra
Impacts of global change on the hydrological cycle in West and Northwest Africa by Peter Speth ( )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Africa is highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. In particular shortage of fresh water is expected to be the dominant water problem for West and Northwest Africa of the 21st century. In order to solve present and projected future problems concerning fresh water supply, a highly interdisciplinary approach is used in the book. Strategies are offered for a sustainable and future-oriented water management. Based on different scenarios, a range of management options is suggested with the aid of Information Systems and Spatial Decision Support Systems for two river catchments in Northwest Africa
The practice of war : production, reproduction and communication of armed violence by Aparna Rao ( Book )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The fact is that war comes in many guises and its effects continue to be felt long after peace is proclaimed. This challenges the anthropologists who write of war as participant observers. Participant observation inevitably deals with the here and now, with the highly specific. It is only over the long view that one can begin to see the commonalities that emerge from the different forms of conflict and can begin to generalize. - from the Introduction by Elisabeth Colsen. This book offers an important contribution to a better understanding of the specific and the general in wartime. It examines how people cope and adjust to situations of war, depending upon whether these are low-intensity or high-intensity ones, on whether they are brief phases of conflict or long enduring periods of violence, with or without intermittent spells of peace. Of particular interest is the exploration of a largely new dimension of social interaction - that of the internet, thus providing a bridge between local concerns and global networks
Pastoralism in Africa : past, present, and future by Michael Bollig ( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Pastoralism has shaped livelihoods and landscapes on the African continent for millennia. Mobile livestock husbandry has generally been portrayed as an economic strategy that successfully met the challenges of low biomass productivity and environmental variability in arid and semi-arid environments. This volume focuses on the emergence, diversity, and inherent dynamics of pastoralism in Africa based on research during a twelve-year period on the southwest and northeast regions. Unraveling the complex prehistory, history, and contemporary political ecology of African pastoralism, results in
