Abstract:This collective volume explores discourses of poverty and prosperity among pastoralists in eastern Africa, along with the social conditions and historical processes that have given rise to them.

Waller (historical patterns of poverty among the Maasai herders); Vigdis Broch-Due (the morality of exchange and the exclusion of the Turkana poor); Bernhard Helander (poverty as a marker of social identity among the Hubeer of Somalia); Aud Talle (Maasai 'poverty' in the town of Namanga on the Kenya/Tanzania border); Ole Bjørn Rekdal and Astrid Blystad (Iraqw and Datooga (Tanzania) discourses on fortune, failure and the future); Elliot Fratkin, Martha A. Nathan, Eric Abella Roth (health consequences of pastoral sedentarization among Rendille of northern Kenya); Fred Zaal and Ton Dietz (pastoral commoditization in Kenya, cases of the Pokot and Kajiado Maasai); Tomasz Potkanski (mutual assistance among the Ngorongoro Maasai, Tanzania); Dorothy L.
