Review

'For social anthropology, this book has the comparative advantage over other monographs dealing with people of the Maravi-cluster and beyond as Morris uses the interface with natural empirical sciences and draws comparative examples from other parts of the world whenever available and accessible... Morris enriches not only the literature on Malawi, but the international debate on how to understand the life of human beings whose struggle for survival is still very much determined and dependent on how they interact with the natural world.'Zeitschrift fur Ethnologie'Brian Morris brings to this work his lifelong experience of Malawian fauna and ethnography, together with enviable skills as a tireless field naturalist and consummate ethnographer.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It may seem obvious, but this is not a book for the layman. The author spends too much time commenting on previous "authorities" and their theories and less time on presenting what is being "studied."

This is a necessary style for a scholarly work, and the author writes well. It just makes for a slower moving book.
