Nuer Journeys, Nuer Lives by Jon D. Holtzman
Book DescriptionThis book examines contemporary migration to the United States through a surprising and compelling case study - the Nuer of Sudan, whose traditional life represents one of the most important case studies in the history of anthropology. It provides an opportunity to examine issues of current importance within anthropology, such as social change, transnationalism, displacement, and diaspora in an easy to understand manner. In understanding the experiences of the Nuer, students will not only gain insights into the world refugee problem and the role of immigration in the United States, they will also learn about the features of Nuer life which are considered a standard part of the anthropology curriculum. The book juxtaposes elements of Nuer culture which are well-known within anthropology - and featured in most anthropology textbooks - with new developments arising from the immigration of many other Nuer to the U.S. in the 1990s as refugees from civil war in southern Sudan. Consequently, this book will fit well within existing anthropology curricula, while providing an important update on descriptions of traditional life.

An ethnography of Samburu cattle herders in northern Kenya that examines the effects of an epochal shift in their basic diet - from a regimen of milk, meat, and blood to one of purchased agricultural products. It uses food as a way to contextualize and measure the profound changes occurring in Samburu social and material life.
