While previous works have concentrated on the interaction between European missionaries and African Christians, Landau shifts the focus to African evangelists, schoolchildren, cattle barons, healers, miscreants, political rebels, and - most of all - Christian women. His text draws heavily on the words of Tswana contemporaries, and so his sources include oral traditions and reminiscences, court reports, and royal and ecclesiastic correspondence in SeTswana, as well as government and missionary archives. The ideologies and practices of Christianity emerge as inseparable features of the sociopolitical construction of power in central Botswana, premised not on Western hegemony, but instead on Tswana self-rule."@en ;
