12000. The Nuer (1940) by e.e. Evans-Pritchard and the Nuer Conquest (1985) by Raymond C. Kelly.
Compares and contrasts these two works on why the African Nuer tribe expanded its territorial size during the 19th century. The argument that the expansion was caused by overpopulation and political divisions (Evans-Prichard) is contrasted with the idea that a cattle economy required the Nuer to seek out more land (Kelly). 6 pages, 19 footnotes, 2 bibliographic sources.
