A Preliminary Survey of the Bantu Tribes of South Africa


Once again we have another of the Ethnological Publication Series.It is a study of the Bantu tribes of South Africa.Set out in 3 parts. Part I is general remarks about the purpose of the work.Part 2,a distribution of the native population,(by province and district) Part 3,a classification of the Bantu tribes of South Africa.It is preliminary in that it is the first of its kind.It is a survey,because it gives a comprehensive view of the tribes,how they came into being,became prominent,and mixed,to form further greater and stronger tribes.A kind of family geneaology.
