Bitter Money: Cultural Economy & Some African Meanings of Forbidden Commodities

Bitter Money, by Parker Shipton, unites symbolic and economic analysis in exploring the beliefs about forbidden exchanges among the Luo of Kenya and other African peoples. Shipton’s multi-paradigmatic theoretical explanation briefly summarizes a century of anthropological thought about African exchange, while integrating ways of understanding rural African economy, politics, and culture.
