Reviews
"[...] this book provides important insights into current pastoral practices on the Mongolian Steppe. It illuminates the relationship between herders, their livestock and the environment which provides for their pastoral way of life. [...] Nomadic Pastoralism among the Mongol Herders: Multispecies and Spatial Ethnography in Mongolia and Transbaikalia will be of tremendous value to anyone interested in nomads of the Mongolian Steppe."
- Daniel J. Miller, Nomadic Peoples, Vol. 26, No. 2 (2022)
