Making Ethnic Ways: Communities and Their Transformations in Taita, Kenya, 1800-1950 (Social History of Africa)
'This is oral history at its best ... pure gold.' - History'Rich in detail, this book allows the women to present us with exceptionally vital portraits of how they saw their times...the tales told by these 22 strong women bear a wealth of vital, even ethnographic, information about their difficult, but never pitiable lives.' - Diana Wylie in Journal of African History'...new substantive material and methodological innovation...' - Sociology'Even without the oral evidence, therefore, this would be an excellent overview of twentieth-century South African history and an introduction to its historiography. As it is, Bozzoli and Nkotsoe have given us a wealth of empirical evidence which should stimulate scholars to rethink their methodology and to question some of the most fundamental assumptions which are commonly made by researchers about African women and history.' - Marc Eprecht in The International Journal of African Historical Studies'...a pathbreaking use of oral history with 22 working class women who migrated from a "homeland" to Johannesburg to work...' - Margaret Snyder in Choice --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
