Jónína Einarsdóttir’s ethnography of the Papal people in the Biambo .

Jónína Einarsdóttir’s ethnography of the Papal people in the Biambo region of Guinea-Bissau is woven around the main theme of child death and the mothers’ responses to this loss. Guinea-Bissau and Brazil present very different social contexts and cultural imaginaries. One leaves this book with a sense that in Guinea-Bissau there is great value of life and love of new life in the form of many children, a dedication to children despite adversity and poverty, and bereavement and sadness with the loss of a child. But we are also left with a looming question: what has happened since the war in Guinea-Bissau?

In this comprehensive and provocative study of maternal reactions to child death in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa, anthropologist Jónína Einarsdóttir challenges the assumption that mothers in high-poverty societies will neglect their children and fail to mourn their deaths as a survival strategy. Based on ethnographic fieldwork conducted from 1993 to 1998 among the matrilineal Papel, who reside in the Biombo region, this work includes theoretical discussion of reproductive practices, conceptions of children, childcare customs, interpretations of diseases and death, and infanticide. Einarsdóttir also brings compelling narratives of life experiences and reflections of Papel women.

Jonina really knows her stuff and makes sense to the reader. I got so much out of this book and wish more people used it as a resource for West Africa in general.
