Abstract:Focusing on pastoralist societies in East and West Africa, the Far North and Siberia, and the Eurasian steppes, this volume addresses the issue of property rights in animals such as cattle, camels and reindeer, and the changes these societies have undergone due to the direct or indirect influence of modernization and globalization processes. It seems that the most complicated, multiple and overlapping property rights in stocks are characteristic of African pastoralists. The volume contains five chapters on Africa: Forms and modalities of property rights in cattle in a Fulbe society (western Burkina Faso), by Youssouf Diallo; Individualization of livestock ownership in Fulbe family herds: the effects of pastoral intensification and Islamic renewal in northern Cameroon, by Mark Moritz; From cultural property to market goods: changes in the economic strategies and herd management rationales of agro-pastoral Fulbe in North West Cameroon, by Michaela Pelican; Fulbe pastoralists and the changing property relations in northern Ghana (Steve Tonah); and Multiple rights in animals: an East African overview (GŁnther Schlee).
