Anthropology and child development : a cross-cultural reader( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unprecedented collection of articles is an introduction to the study of cultural variations in childhood across the world and to the theoretical frameworks for investigating and interpreting them. With a focus on the child's participation in, and acquisition of, cultural practices, the readings include ethnographic studies of childhood among hunting-and-gathering, agricultural, and urban-industrial people in the Pacific, Africa, Latin America, East Asia, Europe, and North America. Introductions to each section provide the student with a historical and conceptual framework for understanding the significance of the particular studies and their implications for developmental theory and educational practice. From the earliest analysis of cultural difference to the most recent articles examining ecological, semiotic, and socio-linguistic difference, "The Anthropology of Childhood" illuminates the process through which people become the bearers of their historically and culturally specific identities

Gusii FL08( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gusii or Abagusii is the people's name for themselves. The Gusii are divided into seven clan clusters: Kitutu (Getutu), North Mugirango, South Mugirango, Majoge, Wanjare (Nchari), Bassi, and Nyaribari. Gusiiland is located in western Kenya, 50 kilometers east of Lake Victoria. This collection of 32 English language documents deals with the Gusii people of Kisii District in southwestern Kenya. The major time span covered is approximately one hundred years ranging from about 1900 to 2001, with a focus on the years of 1950-1976. Only one study in this collection (Hakansson, 1994) deals with the pre-colonial period (i.e., pre-1907); specifically with the relationship between agricultural production and grain and cattle exchange. Two studies provide some degree of general ethnographic coverage; these are LeVine 1966 and 1994. In addition the LeVines (Robert and Sarah) provide a wealth of information on infant and child care and development. Other ethnographic topics covered in this collection are: bride-wealth as a significant feature of Gusii marriage arrangements in Mayer, 1950 and Hakansson, 1988 and 1990; kinship in Mayer, 1949 and 1965; witchcraft and sorcery in LeVine, 1963 and Ogembo, 2001; gender in Hakansson and LeVine, 1997, and Hakansson, 1994; and sex offenses and social control in LeVine, 1959 and 1980. Eight documents are from the text, Child Care and culture: Lessons from Africa
