520    "Hamer has produced a very well-written ethnographic 
       analysis of development and change among the Sadama, a 
       Cushitic-speaking people living along the Rift 
       Valley...The analysis attempts to show how traditional 
       modes of decision making and living adapt to or are 
       adapted to impinging forces of modernization.  Hamer's 
       emphasis on humane development is highly appropriate and 
       his analysis is very successful.  The focus on inevitable 
       and constant change, and the continuing evolution of the 
       society, makes this study a particularly useful one 
       because the lessons of the Sadama can be generalized far 
       beyond the boundaries of East Africa.  The Sadama's 
       particularistic history is of course unique to this group 
       but the patterns of adaption are far more broadly 
       applicable."-Academic Library Book Review
