Culture and Customs of Angola (Non-Fiction)
by Adebayo O. Oyebade

Greenwood Press (November 30, 2006)

USD$49.95/£27.95

The adverse effects of Angola's civil war on every facet of Angola's post-independence life is clearly evident in the range of topics covered in this volume. Readers will learn about the nearly 100 ethnolinguistic groups and their various ways of life. Oyebade shows how religion defines the cultural character of the country. Christianity, the dominant religion, is portrayed as more urban-based, popular among the educated elite and middle class. Indigenous religious practices, still popular particularly in the rural areas, are covered as well. Oyebade celebrates the prolific Portuguese-language literary output and the skilled Angolan artists. Discussion of the traditional foods, ceremonies, music and dance, and more rounds out the coverage.
