Reinventing Africa: Hardback: Zed Books Ltd: 9781856495332: 01 Dec 1997: Challenging western anthropologists to recognize their own class-based, patriarchal thought, Ifi Amadiume, the author of This extraordinary book issues a clarion call for a new understanding of Africa. The author of the best-selling Male Daughters/Female Husbands here issues a challenge to western anthropologists to recognize their own complicity in producing a version of Africa that is often little more than a reflection of their own class-based, patriarchal thought. Professor Amadiume calls instead for a new history of Africa, made and written by Africans. This is such a book. The book * explores how imperialism, violence, patriarchy and class-based social structures - originally imposed by colonialism - have become internalized to result in a contemporary Africa cursed with neo-colonial states. * uncovers the hidden matriarchal history of Africa which continues to empower women in political struggle throughout the continent * looks at the masculinization of indigenous African religions, effected largely by the imposition of Christianity and Islam * provides a guide to the main Afro-centric social theorists, writing a new social history of their continent. Dedicated to the diasporic African communities in their struggle to construct alternative, anti-racist and anti-imperialist epistemologies of self-representation and self-generated ideals, this is the beginning of a new vision of Africa, from the powerful voice of an African woman.

Challenging western anthropologists to recognize their own class-based, patriarchal thought, Ifi Amadiume, the author of "Male Daughters, Female Husbands", issues a clarion call for a new understanding of Africa. Amadiume shows how conventional anthropology has consistently imposed European ideas of the "natural" nuclear family, woman as a passive object, and class difference on a continent. Challenging western anthropologists to recognize their own class-based, patriarchal thought, Ifi Amadiume, the author of "Male Daughters, Female Husbands", issues a clarion call for a new understanding of Africa. Amadiume shows how conventional anthropology has consistently imposed European ideas of the "natural" nuclear family, woman as a passive object, and class difference on a continent with a long history of women with power doing things differently. She uncovers the hidden matriarchal structure of Africa and shows how it has been systematically ignored, how Africa today is cursed with neo-colonial states, and how imperialism, patriarchy and class-based social structures have become internalized. The author calls for an end to anthropology. She calls instead for a social history of Africa, by Africans. This is such a book. Dedicated to the diasporic African communities in their struggles to construct alternative, anti-racist and anti-imperialist epistemologies of self-representation and self-generated ideals, it offers a new vision of Africa, from the voice of an African woman.
