The contents are appropriate for high school and undergraduate students as well as for experts who need a refresher on groups in Africa and the Middle East. While certain ethnic groups have been combined into a single entry, some - such as the Tuareg, who are a Berber people - are described within their own entries because of their importance in history or cultural domination."@en ;
