Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document In writing this book it was the author's intention merely to amplify the writings of Bruno Gutmann which had been published up to that time. This volume remains however as the only general one volume description of the Chagga that we possess. The sections on the natural habitat and economic life are of special interest.
