Association or Assimilation in Africa
9781588340603   Product Code: 84861
This volume is focused on questions concerning the nature of interactions between hunter-gatherers and non-hunter-gatherers and the validity of cultural autonomy. The eleven essays examine the universality of the assimilation of one society by another among past and present foragers in Africa, with the emphasis on southern Africa. They deal with aspects of hunter-gatherer autonomy, or its loss, in specific cases such as the Kalahari Bushmen and the Hadza, and in interaction with Western culture. No jacket.
