The Family Estate in Africa. Studies in the Role of Property in Family Structure and Lineage Continuity.

£4.00

Too often accounts of African family life have tended to describe the family in purely static terms,as though it had a single fixed characrter in any one society.The contributors to this book emphasise the developmental or time dimention of the family,analysing as a process.How this social process actually works is described in seven different societies in East Africa,the Congo and the Transvaal by social anthropologists presenting new material drawn from their own field research.
