Editorial Reviews

Review

"Beyond the Royal Gaze is an important work of eastern African history. Neil Kodesh rethinks concepts of regional history and shows that nodes of authority emerged around the capacity of shrines, spirits, and mediums to heal individual and collective misfortune. In the process, this original book changes our understanding of both clanship and the history of a major kingdom's centralization." - Steven Feierman, University of Pennsylvania, author of Peasant Intellectuals: Anthropology and History in Tanzania "Beyond the Royal Gaze is a major contribution to the field, beautifully written, based on good solid research in terms of ethnographic, oral, and linguistic data, and perhaps most importantly, has provided scholars with an entirely new way of analyzing oral and royal traditions." - Kairn A. Klieman, University of Houston, author of "The Pygmies Were Our Compass": Bantu and Batwa in the History of West Central Africa, Early Times to c. 1900 C.E."
