Abstract:The diversity of Africa makes it impossible to generalize too much about the effects of globalization. This volume examines its affects on family structures in various countries. The Introduction is by Ana Marta González, Laurie F. DeRose, Florence Oloo. It commences with Changes in African families: a review of anthropological and sociological approaches toward family and kinship in Africa (Erdmute Alber and Astrid Bochow); Stretched and strained but not broken: kinship in contemporary Nigeria (Igbo) (Daniel Jordan Smith); Child trafficking in West Africa? (Erdmute Alber); An approach to the concept of family in the African Union (Paloma Durán y Lalaguna); Legislating marriage: globalization and family law reform in West Africa (Benin, Mali, Senegal) (Susanna D. Wing); Matrifocality, patriarchy, and globalization: changing family forms in a South African city (East London) (Leslie Bank); Towards a different kind of freedom: notes on historicizing globalization and women in Africa (Abena P.A. Busia); African masculinities, relationships and sexualities (Victor Seidler); Religion and HIV risk (Laurie F. DeRose). [ASC Leiden abstract]
