Item description for Our Kind of Polygamy by David G. Maillu...

Is polygamy moral? Should the Church marry and bless polygamists? Should Europe and America legalise polygamy? What really is the African's honest opinion of polygamy? David Maillu is a leading African literary writer, and here provocatively discusses these issues. He looks at the relevance of polygamy in the modern society, from historical, ethical, traditional, economic, biblical and psychological standpoints.

Reviews - What do customers think about Our Kind of Polygamy?

An important contribution to the polygamy debate  Oct 19, 2005
The value of this book is that the Kenyan author is able to describe how polygamy functions in a society where it has long been traditional. Author Maillu describes the benefits that flow from polygamy, as well as the problems that arise, and how traditional African society deals with them. There is much shrewd practical advice in this book. Especially interesting is the association of polygamy with what we would call "traditional moral values"--ie extended family, respect for elders, that sort of thing. Polygamy in Africa is not an "alternative lifestyle". The author also looks at modern Africa, under pressure to adopt Western ways. But traditional Africa, he says, has its own wisdom, which is often superior to that of the West. He calls upon his countrymen to take more pride in African ways, to affirm their africanness.And we non-Africans? We too, could learn a thing or two. This book offers unique insights into an interesting subject.
