Culture and Customs of Zambia (2006)
By Scott D. Taylor
Zambia stands out in Africa as one of the continent's most peaceful countries. The country is also one of the most urbanized in sub-Saharan Africa. As a result of this urban influx, Zambia's diverse ethno-linguistic groups interact regularly. Moreover, many contemporary Zambian households, especially those in cities, are also exposed to the media, technology and influences of Western urbanized cultures, from Internet cafes to hip hop music. The interesting ways that "tradition" and "modernity" conflict and combine in contemporary Zambia are prime considerations in this book.
