Abstract:This is the first part of two special sections on the meaning and significance of identity across time and space in eastern Africa. Following an introductory article by Richard Reid and Uoldelul Chelai Dirar, Richard Reid looks at the historical relationship between Eritrea and Ethiopia; Uoldelul Chelai Dirar examines the Italian colonial system in Eritrea and its impact on Eritrean society; Cedric Barnes deals with the Somali Youth League and its attempt to create a Greater Somalia; Hassan Wario Arero considers the ethnic perception of the Kenyan nation held by the Boran, an ethnic minority group in Kenya; Pat Caplan examines the question of whether or not the Swahili of the East African coast exist as a single people.
