THIS collective work by Government and mission officials in the most southerly part of the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan may be regarded as a supplement to the studies of C. G. and B. Z. Seligman, Driberg and Evans-Pritchard. It contains useful information, particularly about several tribes for whom hitherto there has been scarcely any published material available, and bears witness to the painstaking interest of European residents of the area in the institutions of the native peoples among whom they work. A feature of note is that nearly all the data have been collected in the vernacular.
