Overview

Kingship and State: The Buganda Dynasty by Carolyn Brown, Christopher Wrigley

In a study of Africa's political and religious past, Christopher Wrigley uses local traditions and comparative mythology to explore an ancient system of myth and ritual in the precolonial kingdom of Bugunda, the nucleus of modern Uganda. The study includes critical assessment of oral traditions, and places Buganda in a wider regional context. The book is an elegant, wide-ranging and original study of one of Africa's most famous kingdoms.
