This case study integrates cultural meanings with the pastoral economy in clear, non-technical language. Drawing on the Bedouin notion of habitus, the author points out connections between the cultural organization of space, the sexual division of labor, and gender identity, giving students a strong model of the kind of analysis influential in contemporary anthropology. Extensive pedagogy includes glossaries of Arabic terms and anthropological vocabulary, a current bibliography, diagrams of social relationships, and maps and photographs.
