This book explores the tribal politics of the Awlad 'Ali Bedouin in the borderland of Egypt and Libya. These tribal politics are part of heterarchy in which sovereignty is shared between tribes, states and other groups and, within this dynamic setting, the local politicians of the Awlad 'Ali are essential producers of order beyond the framework of the nation state. Based on long-term fieldwork, this monograph is ideal for audiences interested in North African Politics, Libya, Egypt, and borderland studies. Thomas Husken is Senior Research Fellow at the Department for Ethnology of the University of Bayreuth, Germany
