Bowker Data Service Summary
This title examines the interplay between technology, social organization and gender based on an ethnographic study among the Gumuz in the Benishangul region of Northwestern Ethiopia.
Main Description
The book examines the interplay between technology, social organization and gender based on an ethnographic study among the Gumuz in the Benishangul region of Northwestern Ethiopia. It draws on and critiques the analytical framework built by Boserup (1970) and further refined by Goody (1976), i.e., the type of farming technology a society uses determines its social organizational principles and defines gender roles and statuses. (Series: Spektrum. Berliner Reihe zu Gesellschaft, Wirtschaft und Politik in Entwicklungsländern/Berlin Series on Society, Economy and Politics in Developing Countries - Vol. 103)
