About this book

Aneji Eko was technically illiterate, but she represents a resource for understanding the complexities of African and Nigerian cultures. This is an account of matriarchy and the complex ties of kinship, their influences in shaping childhood culture, and how they determined cultural expectations across ethnic groups.

About the authors

David Uru Iyam is Associate Professor of Anthropology at Whittier College, USA.

Reviews

'Iyam provides insights about the role of women in an area of Nigeria outside of those usually discussed. Matriarchy and Power in Africa is filled with beautifully written vignettes that illustrate life with Aneji Eko and will open readers' eyes to a way of life very different from their own.' - Elisha Renne, University of Michigan, USA
