Editorial Reviews


"Emphasizing that culture is a thing of both continuity and change, this book presents a portrait of the African nation of Zambia's culture and custom in manner accessible to the general reader. After an introduction to Zambia's land, people, and history, chapters are presented on religion and worldview; literature and the media; art, architecture, and housing; cuisine and traditional dress; gender roles, marriage, and family; social customs and lifestyle; and music and dance. Also included are a chronology, a glossary, a selected bibliography, and an index."

Format: Hardcover
You never hear much about Africa's Zambia because it's one of the continent's most peaceful countries - that alone will attract any high school or college-level student to a research project assigning an African country - making CULTURE AND CUSTOMS OF ZAMBIA a top recommendation despite its quiet appearance. Zambia is home to many diverse cultures and thus holds far more variety than many African nations: CULTURE AND CUSTOMS OF ZAMBIA is the high school or college-level student's key to understanding the complex nation - and it's a perfect choice for reports.
