9780852550076: Oral Tradition as History

Although written by a leading historian of Africa, Vansina's work on oral traditions ranges far beyond Africa, so has a wider relevance. Vansina explains not only how oral traditions have been used in the past but also how they should be used by historians in their research. North America: University of Wisconsin Press; Kenya: EAEP

About the Author:

Jan Vansina is the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Professor and the Vilas Professor in History and Anthropology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  He was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1983 and was the first scholar chosen as "Distinguished Africanist" by the African Studies Association of the United States.  His many books include Paths in the Rainforest, Living with Africa, Kingdoms of the Savanna (winner of the 1967 Herskovits Prize), and The Children of Woot, all published by the University of Wisconsin Press.

Review:

This is a completely different book from the original Oral Tradition (1961 and 1966) and hence it is right that it should have a different title. It is also a very much better book than the original, though it does not have the pioneering importance which made the original an academic best-seller ... . It addresses itself directly and without apology to an account of the process by which oral history is produced ... . The result is an enormously more subtle and convincing book than the original ... . Its appeal should not be limited to historians of Africa nor indeed to historians as such since it has very interesting things to say about the structuring of human memory and very effective criticisms to make of structuralism. In short it is a remarkable book. - Terence Ranger It will take its place as the most important treatment of the subject and it will appeal to all historians and social scientists who make use of oral evidence or who feel they ought to do so. - A.G. Hopkins, Professor of Economic History in the University of Birmingham
