Overview

Reasonable Radicals and Citizenship in Botswana: The Public Anthropology of Kalanga Elites by Richard Werbner

Focusing on the Kalanga, a minority ethnic group in Botswana, Werbner examines a rare breed of powerful political elites who are not tyrants, torturers, or thieves. He shows how a critical press, cosmopolitanism, entrepreneurship, accountability, and the values of patriarchy and elderhood make for an open society with strong, capable government.
