Abstract: This survey presents a concise, critical and accurate account of our present knowledge of the Mbundu peoples. It is based upon previously published sources, principally 1: Childs and 3: Hambly, as well as personal assistance of Childs, C.M.N. White and J.A. Barnes. The section on social organization and political structure are particularly recommended, since they deal critically with the somewhat contradictory data of the principal sources and point up problems in analysis which remain unresolved. The bibliography, while not exhaustive, is reasonably complete.
