Six studies in African anthropology by Max Gluckman
Professor of Social Anthropology in the University of Manchester
3-The Estrangements of Kinship
By custom, among the TaUensi of the Gold Coast, a man and his eldest son may not -eat together; similarly, among the Tsonga of Mozambique, youths and maidens must not discuss their marital affairs with their parents. 'The details of custom and taboo may vary,' says the speaker, ' but there is this constant general difference between African domestic relations and our own-in Africa there is a whole series of rules to regularise relations within the family. It is striking,' he goes on, ' that while on the one hand the members of the family are brought together by these rules, on the other hand they are forced apart and estranged from one another.' In this lecture Professor Gluckman shows how these estrangements within the family are related to the cohesion of the larger society.
