Looking Back and Around: The Long History of Pastoral Nomads A. The World of Pastoral Societies1. Small populations on large amounts of land: Pastoralists were less productive than settled agriculturalists, resulting in smaller populations that required larger expanses of land. They specialized in making a living off unproductive land. These grasslands could not sustain humans, but they could sustain their herds of animals. Thus, the pastoralists lived off meat, milk, and blood rather than grains. 2. High levels of social and gender equality: With low population density and relatively simple social structures, these societies enjoyed much greater social equality than their settled neighbors. Women engaged in most of the same tasks as men in terms of raising the herd and riding.3. Mobile but in contact with settled agriculturalists: While they were a mobile population that lived off their animals, they still needed the products of settled societies. Thus, even though they might distain the agriculturalists, they were frequently in conduct with them and exchanged their animals products for the manufactured goods of the towns and cities.4. Tribal alliances and military power of horsemen: Without urban centers, it was very difficult to sustain a state system.
