Abstract: The field data for this volume was gathered by the author in the years 1930, 1931, 1935, and 1936. It deals primarily with Nuer family structure, marriage customs and kinship system. Since kinship ties form the basis of Nuer community organization, this source is indispensable to an understanding of the Nuer society as a whole, and particularly of their system of property ownership.
