Using "Tribe" and "Tribalism" Categories to Misunderstand African Societies.
Wiley, David
New England Social Studies Bulletin, v39 n2 p15-17 Spr 1982
Discusses how the misapplication of the concepts, tribe and tribalism, has shaped Western perceptions of ethnic complexity in Africa. The author argues that the misuse of these ideas has led to an oversimplified view of African cultural diversity, often causing errors in U.S. foreign policy. (AM)
