Summary
"This innovative anthology presents an interdisciplinary approach to Yorùbá culture and customs. Written by Yorùbá experts on all continents, the seventy-five chapters in the volume employ a variety of multi-faceted perspectives to provide a detailed study of the Yorùbá people with insights from anthropology, arts, language and linguistics, literature, history, religion, sociology, philosophy, psychology, criminology, law, technology, medicine, pharmacy, engineering, economics, education, political science, music, theater, popular culture, cultural studies, migration and diaspora studies, gender, etc. Each chapter addresses the changes that have taken place in traditional culture. This blend between traditional culture and modifications to such culture gives a balanced and authentic picture of what can be regarded as culture and customs in present-day Yorùbá society."--Back cover.
