Somalia: Economy Without State
Click to enlarge

"Stateless or near stateless territories, increasingly common in Africa, are characterized by 'second economies' based on trans-border trade, 'smuggling', informal finances and global circuits of remittances and goods.  Somalia is an extreme case of an economy without a government."  The book addresses a number of issues:

Does statelesness necessarily mean anarchy and disorder?

Do money, international trade and investment survive without a state?

Do town-dwellers fare as well as pastoralists?

Do pastoralists care about development and social improvement?

The author, Peter D. Little is professor of Anthropology , University of Kentucky.
