Culture and Customs of Somalia (Google eBook)
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.

LibraryThing ReviewUser Review - LibraryThing
Describes the land, people, vegetation, government, and culture throughout history of the area now called Somalia. The introduction relates Somalia's long history, describes how its varied geography and climate belie Somalia's equatorial location, and outlines its changing religious and political practices. Succeeding chapters focus on aspects of modern culture and their development, such as religion, fine arts, and social customs. Though written Somali did not exist before the 20th century, meaning Somalis did not write about themselves in their own language before that time, this book provides background on customs and beliefs preserved in their oral tradition and recorded in other languages. Overall, a good introduction to Somali culture, though it would have benefited from better photos.
