    1. Beskrivelse

      To Be a Man Is Not a One-Day Job by award-winning Africanist Daniel Jordan Smith is an empathic account of changing conceptions of masculinity in Nigeria today and, in particular, the anxious entanglement of money and intimacy in men?s lives. Scholars have long recognized that in Africa affection and social connection are concretized in material support. But the changing economic landscape have made it increasingly difficult for men to navigate their social world. Drawing on the author?s twenty-five years of research in Nigeria, Smith takes readers through the principal phases of men?s lives: from the transition to adulthood, to searching for work while managing courtship, marriage and fatherhood, and, finally, to the transition to elderhood. Throughout, Smith gives a moving glimpse into men?s struggles to fulfill their own and society?s expectations. He details what performing masculinity actually requires in practice along with the social dangers that are being created as men are shouldering increasingly unrealistic responsibilities. The result is a humane and accessible work that will be required reading for anyone interested in how economics and intimacy are being reshaped in Africa today.
