Dance Civet Cat. Child Labour in the Zambezi Valley.


In this,the first comprehensive study of the Tonga people of Zimbabwe,the author focuses on children’s work in a subsistence agricultural system,assessing how much work they do,the value of their work to their families and how it both limmits their opportunities and fosters their personal growth and knowledge.Set in the context of the history of the Tonga people south of the Zambezi river and a discussion of their current position as a minority group in independent Zimbabwe,this is a study of social differentiation,particularly the impact of gender and age,and of the individual as a social agent.
