Culture and customs of Somalia by Mohamed Diriye Abdullahi( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Somalia, the Horn of Africa nation, is finally recovering from recent wars and famine. Written by a native Somali, Culture and Customs of Somalia gives students and interested readers an in-depth look at the land and people, past and present. It is the only accessible, comprehensive, and up-to-date general reference on this country. Somalia was once colonized by Europeans, but Abdullahi's superb survey, with its historical context, evokes a Somaliland from a Somali viewpoint. This Muslim country has strong pastoral roots and is known as a land of poets with a long oral cultural tradition. Some highlights found herein include discussion of handcrafts and artisanry, distinctive architecture and nomad housing, camel culture, intriguing food and eating customs, rites of passage, leisure and economic pursuits, education, and the Somali musical genres. A chronology, glossary, and numerous photos enhance the text.--Publisher's description

Au sein du continent africain marqué par la diversité ethnique et religieuse, la Somalie apparaît comme un pays exceptionnellement homogène : totalement musulman, sa langue nationale, le somali, est partout comprise malgré l' existence inévitable de dialectes. Après son accès à l' indépendance en 1960, la Somalie a connu une guerre de clans sanglante, accompagnée de famine, ce qui explique pourquoi aucun livre en français n' a encore été consacré à ce pays et à sa langue
