Good Company – A Study of Nyakyusa Age – Villages.


This is a study of Nyakyusa age-villages in Southern Tanzania, where the social structure of the society was founded strictly upon age and generation, without regard to familial descendants. Dr Monica Wilson and her husband anthropologist, Godfrey Wilson, lived for some time among the Nyakyusa people, observing their unusual form of communal living. This analysis of the Nyakyusa way of life was written by Dr Wilson after the death of her husband, when she assumed the position of Professor of Social Anthropology at Rhodes University College, Grahamstown, South Africa.
