Religion and Social Control in Indigenous African Colonialism

This ethno-historical survey of the northern Nsukka borderland examines particularly one method of African colonial control.

Problems in Training and Research
Stanley R. Ross - Author

This collection of interdisciplinary papers and commentaries focusing on research problems in Latin America was presented at a conference held 22–23 March 1968 at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. It represents one of the first attempts by experienced scholars to discuss prerequisites and problems for researchers in terms of the methods and approaches, and training needed for field work in Latin America.

This pioneering work, now available for the first time in English, seeks to analyze the political process in Argentina, a nation that has long aspired to political leadership of Latin America but has failed to fulfill its aspiration because of political fragmentation and factionalism.

In determining who holds power in Argentina, Professor Imaz a...(Read More)
