Informal folk narrative genres such as gossip, advice, rumor, and urban legends provide a unique lens through which to discern popular formations of gender conflict and AIDS beliefs. This is the first book on AIDS and gender in Africa to draw primarily on such narratives. By exploring tales of love medicine, gossip about romantic rivalries, rumors of mysterious new diseases, marital advice, and stories of rape, among others, it provides rich, personally grounded insights into the everyday struggles of people living in an era marked by social upheaval.

In this book, Oyěwùmí extends her path-breaking thesis that in Yorùbá society, construction of gender is a colonial development since the culture exhibited no gender divisions in its original form. Taking seriously indigenous modes and categories of knowledge, she applies her finding of a non-gendered ontology to the social institutions of Ifá, motherhood, marriage, family and naming practices. Oyěwùmí insists that contemporary assertions of male dominance must be understood, in part, as the work of local intellectuals who took marching orders from Euro/American mentors and colleagues. In exposing the depth of the coloniality of power, Oyěwùmí challenges us to look at the worlds we inhabit, anew.

The missionaries have often been accused of having destroyed African cultures, be it deliberately or because they did not understand. The author draws a very different picture in his study of a number of German missionaries in various parts of Tanzania, who had a high appreciation of African culture. He argues that acceptance of inculturation attempts do not depend on race but on role, and the same applies to both Black and White.

Superstar, Sänger, Musiker, Panafrikanist, Polygamist, Mystiker, Legende: Der Nigerianer Fela Kuti, Erfinder des Afrobeat, gilt als einflussreichster Musiker Afrikas überhaupt. Er lebte die freie Liebe und heiratete an einem Tag 27 Frauen. Er lehnte die millionenschweren Angebote der Musikmajors ab und blieb in Nigeria, gegen dessen autoritäre Herrscher er sein Leben lang kämpfte. Er wurde eingesperrt, geschlagen und gefoltert. "This Bitch of a Life", die einzige autorisierte Biographie Fela Kutis, basiert auf tagelangen Gesprächen mit Kuti selbst und taucht tief in das Leben dieses so radikalen und oft missverstanden Musikers ein, der 1997 an AIDS starb.
