African Worlds.


The present volume consists of 9 studies, each describing the world outlookof an African people as expressed in their myths of creation, traditions of origin, and religious beliefs. The studies are concerned with such widely divergent systems of thought as the complex Dogon of French West Africa, the Abaluyia of Kenya the Lele of Kasai, the Mende and Ashanti,and much more.
