A Bagful of Locusts and the Baboon Woman: Constructions of Gender, Change, and Continuity in Botswana by David N. Suggs
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


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.
