Abstract: This book is the first real attempt by scholars on Somalia to identify and analyze the basic assumptions which had informed the construction of the now debunked Somali myth. The authors do not only suggest alternative ways of seeing and intrepreting existing data, but also initiate and propose new ways of reading Somali past and present. This new way of reading is not born on the heels of the disintegration of the Somali state. Rather the seminal thesis of the book-- that Somalia had indeed come to a sticking place both in terms of ideas and of state power --has its origins in a paper read at the University of Southern California (USC) in 1983 by one of the book's authors.
Buuggan waxaa ku qoran maqaallo ay isku dayayaan aqoonyahanno ku xeeldheer arrimaha soomaaliyeed si ay u falanqeeyaan, una raadiyaan waxyaabaha asal ahaan ku dhisnayd ustuurada soomaaliyeed ee baaba’day. Aqoonyahanndu waxay ku talinayaan in siyaabo cusub loo tixgeliyo ama loo eego tagtada iyo xaalada joogtada ee Soomaaliya. aragtidan cusub ma aha mid ka timid burburka qaranka soomaaliyeed,, ee waa aragti horay u jirtay, oo mid ka mid ah aqoonyahannaasi uu ka soo jeediyay University of Southern California (USC) sannadka markuu ahaa1983.
Questo libro è il primo tentativo da parte degli studiosi che si occupano della Somalia di identificare e analizzare gli assunti di base che avevano permeato la costruzione dell'ormai sfatato mito somalo. Gli autori non solo suggeriscono delle alternative nell'osservare ed interpretare i dati a disposizione, ma avviano e propongono nuovi modi di considerare il passato e il presente della Somalia. Questa nuova interpretazione non è nata sulla scia della disintegrazione dello stato somalo; piuttosto, la tesi fondamentale del libro - ovvero che la Somalia sia di fatto giunta al punto limite sia in termini di idee che di potere statale - trae origine da un lavoro presentato presso la University of Southern California (USC) nel 1983 da uno degli autori del libro.
