Summary

Not since the publication of Lee's case study on the Dobe Ju/'Hoansi and Turnbull's case study on the Mbuti Pygmies, has there been such an interesting addition to the African cases of the Spindler Case Studies in Cultural Anthropology series. Set in the subSaharan Africa in a contemporary context, this ethnography represents over 12 years of field research that focuses on the popular twin themes of culture change and gender roles amongst the BaKgatla of Botswana.

Table of Contents

1. That Old Man Just Called Me a Monkey!: Of Botswana and the BaKgatla.
2. I'm Very Old For My Age: Women's Life Course.
3. The Baboon Woman: Of Coke Cans, Beer and the Construction of Gender.
4. These Young Chaps Think They are Just Men, Too: Constructions of Age Within Masculinity.
5. A Bagful of Locusts.
6. The Thirst Quencher Conclusions About Culture Change and Continuity.
