Synopsis

The Swazi An Ethnographic Account of the Natives of the Swaziland Protectorate by Brian Allan Marwick

Brian Allan Marwick (1908-92) was a colonial administrator and anthropologist who worked extensively with the Swazi people. In this book, which was originally published in 1940, Marwick presents a detailed analysis of various aspects of Swazi culture, drawing upon his extensive experience as a government official, together with fieldwork carried out during July and August 1934. The text examines social organization, economic life, religion and magic, political organization, the legal system, and the effects of European contact. Numerous illustrative figures and an appendices section are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the Swazi and the development of ethnography and anthropology.
