Land, Gender and the Periphery

Themes in the History of Eastern and Southern Africa

edited by Bahru Zewde

The study of the African past from an African perspective, a process contemporaneous with the emergence of the continent from colonial rule, is less than half a century old. Land, Gender and the Periphery brings together essays from historians throughout Eastern and Southern Africa and reflects new directions of research in the region through an interdisciplinary dialogue concerning the study of history as a social science, as well as a branch of the humanities. The study is centered around the following themes: gender in education, migration, national reconciliation, legal status and the production process; land entitlement and development; and centre- periphery relations.
