based this thorough and comprehensive study on fieldwork done during a
three-year stay in the area. The source includes portions on physical
anthropology, linguistics and the folklore of the Nama, including the original
texts. Hunting and food-raising are dealt with in detail, as is the life-cycle,
acculturation, kinship and government. Also included are data on games, music,
flora and fauna, and material culture.
