The question taken up in this chapter is whether similar forms of class-like differentiation shape the transitional experiences of less stratified peoples peripheral to state control, particularly nomadic groups. Upon reviewing local empirical studies of women's fertility and health in tribal pastoral and hunting-gathering economies, the chapter affirms the presence of sociodemographic equality in multiple contexts.

Keywords:   Egalitarian, fertility and mortality variation, nomadic peoples, pastoralists, hunter-gatherers, noble savage, romanticization of primitives
