The book examines the interplay between technology, social organization
and gender based on an ethnographic study among the Gumuz in the
Benishangul region of Northwestern Ethiopia. It draws on and critiques the
analytical framework built by Boserup (1970) and further refined by Goody
(1976), i.e., the type of farming technology a society uses determines its
social organizational principles and defines gender roles and statuses.
