This paper presents a model for the integration of pastoral nomads into nation-states. To this. end, two areas of the world in which pastoral nomadism had been predominent within historic times-Central Asia and West Africa-were examined. Security considerations tended to overshadow economic considerations in the formation of state policy toward nomadic peoples in the two areas. However, a broader trend, involving the expansion of the world economic system can also be discerned. This pattern held constant under both capitalistic and socialistic governments.
