Routledge is proud to be re-issuing this landmark series in association with the International African Institute. The series, published between 1950 and 1977, brings together a wealth of previously un-co-ordinated material on the ethnic groupings and social conditions of African peoples.
Concise, critical and (for its time) accurate, the Ethnographic Survey contains sections as follows:
- Physical Environment
- Linguistic Data
- History & Traditions of Origin
- Cultural Features: Religion, Witchcraft, Birth, Initiation, Burial
- Social & Political Organization: Kinship, Marriage, Inheritance, Slavery, Land Tenure, Warfare & Justice
- Economy & Trade
- Domestic Architecture
Each of the 50 volumes will be available to buy individually, and these are organized into regional sub-groups: East Central Africa, North-Eastern Africa, Southern Africa, West Central Africa, Western Africa, and Central Africa Belgian Congo.
The volumes are supplemented with maps, available to view on routledge.com or available as a pdf from the publishers.
