Joseph Hobbs lived with the Khushmaan Ma'aza clan for nearly two years in Egypt's Eastern Desert. His work includes a wealth of ethnographic detail about Bedouin beliefs, values, and lifeways. He shows how the Ma'aza have evolved from being abusers to being preservers of the natural environment, and suggests what planners for desert development might learn from them. Joseph J. Hobbs is assistant professor of geography at the University of Missouri at Columbia
