Nancy CassellMcEntire Indiana University Under the Kapok Tree;Identity and Difference in Beng Thought. Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 1992. Identity and difference emerge as tensions in the systems of descent and alliance and impinge upon each other in Beng cosmology and ritual practice. In Beng stories, the mythic characters of dog and hyena are constantly engaged in a play of identity and difference. Beng relations with actual dogs and hyenas reflect this symbolic load but in a manner distinct from their mythic counterparts.

Under the Kapok Tree: Identity and Difference in Beng Thought (Paperback). Alma Gottlieb (author). In this companion volume to "Parallel Worlds," Alma Gottlieb explores ideology and social practices among the Beng people of Cote d'Ivoire. Employing symbolic and postmodern perspectives, she highlights the dynamically paired notions of identity and difference, symbolized by the kapok tree planted at the centre of every Beng village.

Under the Kapok Tree, a richly textured ethnography informed by postmodern theory, explores the relationship between ideology and social practices among the Beng people of Cote d'Ivoire. Alma Gottlieb proposes an interpretation of Beng life based on notions of identity and difference, two principles fundamental to the Beng worldview that at times appear complementary and at times oppositional. The kapok tree, at the heart of every Beng village, is analyzed as a central symbol that embodies the fundamental duality of identity and difference, maintaining the boundaries between village and forest while at the same time confounding the distinction between them. Combining fieldwork with theoretical perspectives from symbolic anthropology, practice theory, postmodernism, and philosophy and providing abundant case studies, Gottlieb analyzes Beng myths and rituals, concepts of descent and alliance patterns, and the problematic incorporation of Western commodities into Beng culture.
