Drei Frauen, deren Schicksal unwiderruflich miteinander verknüpft ist, die Feindinnen werden könnten und am Ende ein prekäres Bündnis des Überlebens schließen – die neun Jahre alte Deqo, die aus dem Flüchtlingslager, in dem sie geboren ist, in die Stadt flieht; Kawsar, eine einsame Witwe, die um ihre Tochter trauert und an ihr Bett gefesselt ist, und Filsan, eine junge Soldatin, die mithelfen soll, den Aufstand zu unterdrücken. In ihrem Roman „Der Garten der verlorenen Seelen“ erzählt die britische Autorin Nadifa Mohamed eine Geschichte aus Somalia Ende der Achtzigerjahre, einem Land kurz vor dem Bürgerkrieg. Innig, offen, voll Schönheit und gelegentlich wilder Liebe erzählt sie von gewöhnlichen Leben in außergewöhnlichen Zeiten. Wir sehen und hören, riechen und spüren das Land, eine fremde Welt, und fühlen uns doch erinnert an die Geschichte anderer zerfallener, zerstörter Staaten, an den Libanon, Jugoslawien, Syrien. Und wie überall sind es die Netzwerke der Frauen, die ein Weiterleben ermöglichen.

1991, kurz nach Beginn des bis heute andauernden Krieges, brach in Somalia der Staat vollständig zusammen. Jutta Bakonyi zeigt, wie seitdem die Gesellschaft jenseits zentralstaatlicher Regulierung funktioniert, und welche Macht und Herrschaftsstrukturen sich herausgebildet haben. Die Untersuchung des Handels mit der Droge Khat, des Währungs- und Finanzmarkts sowie der internationalen Entwicklungshilfe verdeutlicht, welche Wirtschaftsstrukturen jenseits des Staates entstanden sind.

Since the fall of the Siad Bare regime in Somalia in 1991 and the fratricidal war that it unleashed in its wake, Somalia has been without an effective central government. Instead, warlords and their armed bandits have been controlling different parts of the country, with the former British colony of northern Somaliland unilaterally proclaiming its independence. Developments in the country since the recent transitional government was set up in 2004 have, however, presented both opportunities and challenges for the country. While much has been reported about the prevailing situation in the country, there has been a paucity of research articulating the various perspectives and challenges in the efforts to reconstitute Somalia's failed state. This book hopes to contribute in filling this gap. Contributors to the volume examine the various issues that lie behind the current situation in Somalia, seeking answers to a number of crucial questions: Why did the Somali state fail? What role did external actors and the internal configurations of the Somalis' socio-political structure play in the state collapse? Did the various peace and reconciliation conferences really achieve anything? Should Somalia be reconstituted as one state or should more than one state be allowed to emerge from the ashes of the collapsed state? What is the way forward out of the current imbroglio in Somalia?

In the last three decades, Somalia has been associated with such horrible terms as 'state collapse', 'civil wars', 'foreign intervention', 'warlordism', 'famine', 'piracy' and 'terrorism'. This depiction was in contradiction to its earlier images as the cradle of the human race, the kernel of ancient civilizations, the land of Punt, a homogeneous nation-state and the first democratic state in Africa. So how did things fall apart in the country? This Volume 1 of a two-volume narrative, Dr. Abdullahi explores the history of the people of Somali peninsula since ancient times, the advent of Islam and colonialism, the rise and fall of Somali nationalism and the perspectives of the Somali state collapse. The book uses a unique thematic approach and analysis to make sense of Somali history by emphasizing the responsibility of Somali political elites in creating and perpetuating the disastrous conditions in their country.

The universal act of dressing—shared by both men and women, young and old, rich and poor, minority and majority—has shaped human interactions, communicated hopes and fears about the future, and embodied what it means to be Somali. Heather Marie Akou mines politics and history in this rich and compelling study of Somali material culture. Akou explores the evolution of Somali folk dress, the role of the Somali government in imposing styles of dress, competing forms of Islamic dress, and changes in Somali fashion in the U.S. With the collapse of the Somali state, Somalis continue a connection with their homeland and community through what they wear every day.
