Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
In this article, Evans-Pritchard analyzes mainly two types
of Azande warfare: (1) fairly large-scale campaigns between kingdoms, and (2) the
smaller-scale raids between provinces of adjacent kingdoms. Civil wars between kingdoms are
not dealt with, and wars with the Europeans and Arabs are discussed only briefly. The
following dimensions of warfare are considered: its objectives and motivations, military
organization, mobilization of war resources, logistics, strategies and tactics, battle
organization and deployment of forces, defensive and offensive engagements, weaponry and
its uses, and so forth.
