|Abstract:||This volume is a successor to 'Gender, family and household in Tanzania' (1995), which focussed on the structure and workings of households. The 12 essays in the present volume have a wider scope and cover, amongst other issues, men and masculinity, gender relations among professionals, the position of children, the changing nature of marriage, the organization of work, the influence of law and the evolution of the urban framework. Several papers also provide a deeper understanding of the history of family and gender relations in Tanzania. Contributors: John Campbell, Pat Caplan, Colin Creighton, Eleanor Fisher, James L.
