The Maasai of Matapato: A Study of Rituals of Rebellion

Synopsis

When first published in 1988, this classic study was the first to relate the dynamics of the Maasai age organisation to tensions within the family. Together, these provide the twin strands of a man's career, opposed ritually and reflecting a fundamental ambivalence in Maasai thought. The analysis is illustrated with extensive case material from the Matapato, selected for this study as a typical Maasai group.
