Hi to all,

Does anybody know literature in which african age sets and classes
are compared with western models? I am presently working on a
paper regarding this and would be happy to hear about new ideas.
I am also interested in the question, whether a comparision makes
sense/is usefull at all etc.

I am thankful for any advice!
