Essays on African Marriage in Southern Africa.


This book adds new dimensions to our understanding of African marriage. It contains a brief analysis of the character of the marriage systems in relation to the social structure, of the major groupings into which the African peoples of Southern Africa can be divided. The book illuminates a number of theoretical problems, such as the nature of cross-and parallel-cousin marriage. This study should be of interest not only to the anthropologist and sociologist, but also to the lawyer, the political scientist and the layman with an interest in the social and political issues of the day.
