Tobacco, time and the household economy in two Kenyan societies: the Teso and the Kuria

Tobacco, time and the household economy in two Kenyan societies: the Teso and the Kuria

Comparative Studies in Society and History 33(1): 130-157

This paper argues that in order to capture the dynamics of local cultural interactions, attention must be paid to other space-time frames. An attempt is made to account for the different effects of an increase in tobacco-growing on household structure and gender relationships among the Kuria of South Nyanza district and the Teso in the Busia district of Western Province, Kenya. Time is suggested as an integrating framework.
