Tribal Innovators. Tswana Chiefs and Social Change. 1795-1940.


This book is a completly revised version of a study published in 1943 and long out of print.It descibes historically and analyses the very many social changes known to have been made,up to the end of 1940,by successive rulers of the five largest chiefdoms in what is now the Republic of Botswana.Through legislation,judicial decisions,and administrative action those chiefs contributed substancially,and often independently of European influence,to the transformation of Tswana life.
