The culture of colonialism the cultural subjection of Ukaguru by T. O Beidelman ( )
8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What did it mean to be an African subject living in remote areas of Tanganyika at the end of the colonial era? For the Kaguru of Tanganyika, it meant daily confrontation with the black and white governmental officials tasked with bringing this rural people into the mainstream of colonial African life. T. O. Beidelman's detailed narrative links this administrative world to the Kaguru's wider social, cultural, and geographical milieu, and to the political history, ideas of indirect rule, and the white institutions that loomed just beyond their world. Beidelman unveils the colonial system's probl

The cool knife imagery of gender, sexuality, and moral education in Kaguru initiation ritual by T. O Beidelman ( )
4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In The Cool Knife, T. O. Beidelman analyzes in rich detail the ritual, imagery, and symbolism of Kaguru initiations, relating them to other Kaguru ceremonies as well as to more routine daily activities. He argues that initiation educates boys and girls in their gender roles and constructs an ethnic identity that is assuming greater importance to the Kaguru as outside pressures threaten to undermine their culture. The first ethnography that examines both male and female initiations in an African society in equal detail, the book describes how Kaguru elders teach novices to value ambiguity and wordplay, to understand the body and its appetites, and to practice a complex etiquette that regulates daily behavior. Built up from the the manifold experiences and cues of everyday Kaguru routine, the ritual provides initiates with a unifying ethnic vision that allows for multiple perspectives and interpretations. The companion to an earlier study that charted the scope and character of Kaguru moral imagination, The Cool Knife explores the broader implications of rituals that transfer sexual and cultural knowledge from one generation to the next. Linking Kaguru concepts of gender and culture to the writings of such Western philosophers as Rousseau, Montaigne, Durkheim, Mauss, de Beauvoir, and van Gennep, it provides penetrating insights into the role of education and initiation in any society
