Abstract:A biographical essay on the anthropologists Philip and Iona Mayer, who worked in Kenya (Kisii) as government anthropologists from 1946 to 1949, and who lived and worked in South Africa from 1952 to 1980. Their work extends from an interest in kinship systems and terminology, through a concern with labour migration and urbanization to a focus on socialization and the problems of youth as well as on women and gender. A chronologically arranged bibliography of their written works has been added at the end of this issue (p. 272-274), which is a Festschrift for the Mayers. Bibliogr., notes, ref.
