Luo FL11( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Luo collection covers cultural, historical, economic and demographic information circa 1895 to 2000. There are a number of general ethnographies on Luo culture and society as observed by professional anthropologists in late the 1920s to the mid-1930s. Specific themes covered in these works include tribes, kinship and social organization, marriage and sex restrictions, religion, life cycles and burials. These ethnographic accounts are further supplemented by the works of historian Jean Hay, discussing changes in material culture and gender relations that took place before the Second World War as a direct result of British colonial rule and the complex forces it set in motion. The collection also includes anthropological works that specifically focus on the post Second World War decade with particular emphasis on dynamics of lineage and family ties, customary law and Luo attitudes toward homicide and suicide. Other documents in the collection focus on the actual experiences of Luo men and women with urbanization and nationally designed development programs in the post-independence period (1963-2000). Specific themes covered include Luo responses to urbanization, modern education and population growth, changes in public health and nutrition, land policy, and the local effects of labor migration and global market forces; and misguided development programs. The remaining documents by Blount provide a linguistic analysis of Luo genealogical accounting, personal naming systems, and comprehensive bibliographic information of existing works on Luo culture and society, circa 1920-2000

Douglas Johnson's work is mostly historical covering the period of the Anglo-Egyptian condominium (1898-1955) with a focus on the role of prophets in Nuer social, political, and religious life. Evans-Pritchard describes Nuer ecology, subsistence, sociopolitical organization, kinship and marriage, and religion. Hutchinson examines gender relations; the trying period of the Sudanese Civil War (1955-present); and the changes to Nuer society and culture wrought by money, war, and the state.
