Summary
"Once Intrepid Warriors advances a brilliantly persuasive critique of development among the Maasai. . . . This historical ethnography is a tour de force, counter-balancing the analysis of cultural, political, and socio-economic transformation over the longue duree with intimate and memorable portraits of representative individuals." ✹Richard Werbner "In a series of chapters on the interrelationships of ethnicity, gender, and modernity, Hodgson concludes that it is not the Maasai who have remained static, but rather the external images of them." ✹Choice ". . . meticulous and well-documented . . . a valuable resource. . . ."✹Africa.--
