In this study Dr Audrey Richards describes the
conditions of the Bemba of North-Eastern Rhodesia, with special
reference to the effects of migrant labour on the social and
economic life of a mainly agricultural society. Although
primarily concerned with the production, distribution, and
consumption of food, and with conditions of labour and standards
of living, the book gives a vivid picture of the social structure
of the Bemba – their political organisation and the functions of
the chief, systems of land-tenure, kinship groupings, and the
whole complex of economic, social, and magico-religious factors
which arise in any community.
The book has been widely
recognised as an authoritative study particularly among
economists and anthropologists.
