Routledge is proud to be re-issuing this landmark sequence in organization with the foreign African Institute. The sequence, released among 1950 and 1977, brings jointly a wealth of formerly un-co-ordinated fabric at the ethnic groupings and social stipulations of African peoples.
Concise, serious and (for its time) actual, the Ethnographic Survey contains sections as follows:
- Physical Environment
- Linguistic Data
- History & Traditions of Origin
- Cultural gains: faith, Witchcraft, delivery, Initiation, Burial
- Social & Political association: Kinship, Marriage, Inheritance, Slavery, Land Tenure, conflict & Justice
- Economy & Trade
- Domestic Architecture
Each of the 50 volumes may be in the stores separately, and those are prepared into nearby sub-groups: East principal Africa, North-Eastern Africa, Southern Africa, West principal Africa, Western Africa, and principal Africa Belgian Congo.
The volumes are supplemented with maps, to be had to view on routledge.com or to be had as a pdf from the publishers.
