Abstract:The Pan African Anthropological Association (PAAA) marked the 10th anniversary of its creation by holding its 9th Annual Conference in Yaounde, Cameroon, from 30 August-2 September 1999. The conference, themed 'The Anthropology of Africa: Challenges for the 21st Century', was attended by some seventy participants, mostly African. The conference proceedings were initially published in 2000 with very limited circulation. Given the continued relevance of the papers presented, the PAAA has republished the proceedings of its landmark 9th Annual Conference. The book consists of forty-three chapters divided into eight parts, namely: Teaching anthropology in the decades ahead; Health challenges: HIV/AIDS anthropological perspectives; NGO'S use and misuse of anthropology; Anthropological focus on environment; Some applied issues in anthropology; The African family in crisis; Ethnicity and ethnic conflicts; and Population issues and anthropology: fertility crisis.
