Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This article investigates the ways in which gender and race are evoked in Inkatha's militant ethnic politics and how its conception of Zuluness and of blackness were bound up with the issues of manliness and male mobilization. The authors note the need to relate Inkatha's mobilization narratives of the 1980s to historical and structural realities that made an impact on the geographical and social positioning of men in relation to ethnic politics, to modes of production and vis-á-vis relations of gender. This study examines how masculinities, 'men's places and practices in the large social framework of gender relations', are accommodated and newly defined within the political discourse of Inkatha (pp. 197-198)
