ABOUT THIS BOOK
In Southern Nilotic History, Christopher Ehret reconstructs the history of the Southern Nilotic speaking peoples of East Africa, from their earliest origins to the beginning of the colonial period.

“As a history, the book is a remarkable tour de force. Using mainly linguistic evidence, the author locates populations, moves them around, determines their relative influence vis-à-vis their neighbors, and reconstructs aspects of their culture, from basic economy to the practice of extracting incisors.” —American Anthropologist
