About the Author:

Colleen Kriger is Assistant Professor of History at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro.

Review:

Kriger presents a densely-argued analysis of ironworking in the forests and savannas of the Congo River basin ... Kriger has done a remarkable job in utilizing lexical data and a wide range of iron objects themselves as historical sources ... thrilling to discover the depth of information that could be mined from existing sources to vitalize our understanding of the mute objects in museum collections and archaeological assemblages. - Douglas E. Miller in AFRICAN STUDIES REVIEW As a study of the relationship of production and consumption with status and power, however, Pride of Men opens new understandings of the economic and social conditions that once gave rise to the prestige and independent power of ironworkers in African cultures, not just in nineteenth-century Zaire but also - if we use her study as strong inference - when Bantu-speaking communities first began to produce iron in central and east Africa. - Peter R. Schmidt in JOURNAL OF AFRICAN HISTORY
