Abstract

The article explores the colonial policies of Great Britain in sub-Saharan Africa during the interwar period by focusing on the practice of bridewealth or lobola, in East and Southern Africa. It represents the differences between liberal reforms and policies of noninterference in colonial administration. Subjects include social reformer Nina Boyle, the beliefs of anthropologists, missionaries in Africa, and rules governing gender and sexuality.
