Africanists will welcome this unique in-depth regional study of sociopolitical change. Edouard Bustin performs an ambitious task of social analysis in this inquiry into the workings and effects of alien rule upon an African state. He takes the historically important African kingdom of Lunda through the phase of state formation, its encapsulation within the colonial system, and incorporation into the politics of independence. The study draws upon the work of historians, anthropologists, and political scientists, as well as the writings of administrators and missionaries. It effectively relates past to present and provides a careful exploration of the sheer complexity of colonial policy in the field.
