The fourteen lectures and essays that make up this volume deal mainly, though not exclusively, with Africa, and among the topics discussed are land tenure, chieftainship, 'clientship', messianic movement, witchcraft, and 'race, tribalism and nationalism'.

Industry Reviews

'One hardly needs to say that Professor Mair's writing shows at once clarity and elegance of presentation, combined with knowledge of the problems, and an impeccable grasp of both their theoretical and administrative implications, which makes all her work significant.' Rosemary Firth, Man
