This is the first full-length history of the kingdom of
Kazembe, one of the principal and most enduring component of
the Lunda `commonwealth‘. Unlike many kindred monographs,
the book examines both the pre-colonial and the colonial
trajectories of the eastern Lunda kingdom. This innovative
approach reflects awareness of the pliability of historical
consciousness and the extent to which oral sources were
moulded by the colonial context.

G. Macola is researcher at the School of Oriental
and African Studies (London).
