A. K. H. Weinrich


The book is out of print.


Chiefs and Councils in Rhodesia is a scholarly study, by an established social anthropologist, of the chieftaincy system in Rhodesia and its manipulation and deterioration at the hands of successive Rhodesian governments, but with particular reference to the Rhodesian Front government of Ian Smith.


[Weinrich] has a fine eye for conflicting forces in operation and her shrewdly observed material is lucidly and insightfully analyzed. Those concerned with politics would be ill-advised to neglect this book. - Marc J. Swartz, American Anthropologist


Dr A. K. H. Weinrich was a professor at the University of Rhodesia who was forced into exile during the UDI period.
