Man in Africa

By Colin M. Turnbull
Anchor Press/Doubleday, 1976
313 pp. $7.95
Purchase

The author of distinguished mass-market anthropology, Turnbull now takes on the culture of all Africa. The result, inevitably simplistic, affords the lay reader a mélange of detail about African societies of the grasslands, river valleys, forests, woodlands, and deserts; the whole is unified by reiteration of African man's communality and harmony with his natural environment.
