This is the first paperback edition of Anatoly M. Khazanov's famous comparative study of pastoral nomadism. Hailed by reviewers as "majestic and magisterial," Nomads and the Outside World was first published in English in 1984. With the author's new introduction and an updated bibliography, this classic is now available in an edition accessible to students.
Cambridge U. Press published the first English edition in 1984; this edition adds a new 30-page introduction and a major 16-page addition to the original bibliography. We are surprised to find no evidence of a hardbound second edition; it is an important piece of research. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
