Abstract:

This collection consists of 8 documents in English (including two translations from the German, and one from Swahili) covering cultural, economic and historical information circa 1880 to early 2003. The most comprehensive works are by a missionary who lived with the Chagga for more than two decades in the first quarter of the twentieth century. Together, these books provide the first systematic attempts to understand pre-colonial Chagga culture and society with particular reference to customary law, religious life, social organization, and status of elders. The collection also includes two works which provide a general description of Chagga society and various customs by a British government official and a former native chief. The remaining works are ethnographic accounts by professional anthropologists. Specific themes covered include socialization and child-rearing practices, change and continuity in customary laws and aspects of divination.
