The Baganda; an account of their native customs and beliefs by John Roscoe( Book )

48 editions published between 1911 and 2011 in English and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Missionary and amateur anthropologist John Roscoe (1861-1932) published this account of the Baganda tribe of Buganda in 1911, to preserve a record of a sophisticated people before their cultural traditions were undermined as their territory became part of the British Protectorate of Uganda. He had spent twenty-five years in Africa, during which he interviewed the people in their own languages about their customs and religious beliefs. The Baganda is a straightforward survey of a traditionally organised way of life. Birth, upbringing, marriage, death and burial, clans, kings, government, warfare, and other topics are treated in careful detail. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the longest chapter is on religion, but Roscoe makes non-judgmental observations on customs which did not fit with western morality. More recent anthropological research has amplified Roscoe's findings, but has found little to correct, and this remains a standard work on a culture about to undergo a massive transformation
The northern Bantu; an account of some central African tribes of the Uganda Protectorate by John Roscoe( Book )

44 editions published between 1915 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Roscoe (1861-1932) was an ordained Christian missionary who was elected a Fellow of the Royal Anthropological Society in 1912 for his contributions to the ethnographic record of Uganda. John Roscoe joined the Uganda mission in 1891 and upon returning to England in 1909 he began to publish the results of his investigations into the lives of the indigenous people in Uganda. This edition contains an ethnographic survey of six different indigenous Bantu speaking groups living near Lake Victoria, and was first published as part of the Cambridge Archaeological and Ethnological Series in 1912. In this work he describes the social, political and economic life of these groups before European influence from colonialism, drawn from interviews with local people in their own language. This volume contains views on ethnicity which were acceptable at the time this volume was published

Ganda : FK07( )

in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ganda live in the province of Buganda in Uganda. This file consists of 28 documents with a time range from 1200 to 1991. The studies focus on Baganda history before British overrule (1200-1900), acculturation during the subsequent period of British administration (1901-1961), and various subjects in the contemporary period following independence in 1962. The file includes studies of the traditional system of authority and changes in the system that occurred after 1900. Other studies focus on post-1900 changes in land tenure, status, social mobility, and marriage. Two labor studies examine labor migration under the colonial administration and the assimilation of immigrant laborers in Buganda in the 1950s. Other postwar studies include examinations of political behavior and attitudes, changes in occupational structure, and the effect of the Baganda authority system on innovation and change. Post-Independence studies include an examination of ethnic categories of mental health, infant care and development, and the impact of microtechnologies on rural life
