DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY
In writing this thesis I have received kindness, advice, encouragement, inspiration and succour from many different quarters. In ECSC I have been largely supported by the AHRB, and Somali State.

Tim Carmichael afforded me a great deal of professional assistance and advice... [continues]
