Abstract: Written for a series called 'Case Studies in Cultural Anthropology,' this work is largely a summary of Beattie's larger work on the Banyoro (see document no. 1). He covers the same material on myths, history, kingship and chieftainship. However, he has added very good descriptions of kinship and community relationships (among the best I have read anywhere), and medical practices.
