9780197261460: The Upper Nile Province Handbook: A Report on the People and Government in the Southern Sudan (Oriental and African Archives)

This account of one of the Sudan's remotest provinces provides the historical context for the early classics of British social anthropology. It contains descriptions of local life by some of the first British officials to become conversant in the languages of Dinka, Nuer and Shilluk - at a time when Evans-Pritchard's field- work had only just begun.

Review:

`fascinating book ... admirably researched' Philip Lyon Roussel, African Affairs, July 1997

`Willis's Handbook is ... more than most, both a political and a personal document, a swan-song to defend his policies as much as an objective description of his province ... a welcome addition to the historical record of the Condominium. Half a century late, as the editor notes, it provides striking commentary on events in a region even now in the throes of civil war.' M.W. Daly, Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies Vol. 60, No. 2 '97

`It replicates, on a grand scale, many of the features of the (unpublished) District Books and handing-over notes of other colonial territories. We all owe a debt to Johnson and the British Academy for making the handbook available, not merely as a source but also as a memorial to a world whose contradictions remain even while its substance is fast being overlaid or destroyed by forces more ruthless than amateur ethnographers and ex-military administrators.' Richard Waller, Bucknell University, Lewisburg PA, Journal of African History, Vol. 38 - 1997
