Abstract: "Situated between the Sahara, traditionally the domain of pastoral nomadism, and the Sudanian zone, the Sahel zone has long been a place of encounter, of competition--even confrontation--between herders and farmers. But is it not also a center for unique modes of production based on techniques specific to Africa and capable of explaining some of the most noteworthy aspects characteristic of Africa south of the Sahara?"
