Abstract
An excellent work, especially on general social organization, ceremonies surrounding the individual's life crises, and secret societies. Material on religion is subject to highly theoretical interpretation. The section on religion and magic has been utilized by Evans-Pritchard and compared with his own data (source number 2), where it is best consulted.
