Synopsis

This book is a brilliant commentary on the political culture of the BaKongo of Lower Congo (now the Democratic Republic of Congo). MacGaffey analyzes texts written by young Kongo men between 1914 -1916 to explicate KiKongo culture and to question long-cherished anthropological assumptions.
