Between Somaliland and Puntland: Marginalization, militarization and conflicting political visions

This work by Markus Hoehne is an invaluable contribution to the scant literature on ‘borderlands’ and marginal ‘borderland communities’ between ‘Puntland’ and ‘Somaliland’. The book provides an anthropological and richly textured take on the dynamics of sub-state formation and the politics of ‘borderland political entrepreneurship’ by elites in the contested territories between Puntland and Somaliland. It describes the evolution over a decade, of Dhulbahante and Warsangeli elite interaction with the different regional administrations in northern Somalia.
