Most widely held works by Colin M Turnbull
The forest people by Colin M Turnbull( Book )

153 editions published between 1961 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 3,447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of the BaMbuti Pygmies of the Congo has become a classic work in the finest tradition of literate anthropology. Turnbull lived among the BaMbuti for three years, not as a clinical observer, but as a friend, learning their customs and sharing their daily life. Turnbull describes their hunting parties and nomadic camps, their love affairs and ancient ceremonies--the molimo, in which the Pygmies praise the forest as provider, protector, and deity; the elima, in which the young girls come of age; and the nkumbi circumcision rites, in which the villagers of the surrounding non-Pygmy tribes attempt to assert their authority over the Pygmies, whose forest home they dare not enter

The Mbuti pygmies : change and adaptation by Colin M Turnbull( Book )

20 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in English and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This case study provides a unique opportunity for readers to learn not only about a most interesting people, the Mbuti pygmies of the Ituri forest, but also about changes in a very significant part of Africa from the colonial era to the present. It is not often that a single book will cover so great a time span of such importance to the shape of the modern world. Nor is it often that we can receive the thoughtful analysis of a senior anthropologist who has done repeated field work in such an area over such a period of time in the format of case study."--Page v
