Christianity and the Shona book. The author's thesis is that there were factors in the indigenous religious system of the Shona, which allowed them to assimilate Christianity as a viable alternative form of religion.

A study of religion in a Rhodesian tribe, based on the author's field work in the Shona community from 1962-4.

Social anthropology is distinguished from subjects such as economics or political science by its holistic range and the attention it gives to the comparative diversity of societies and cultures across the world, and the capacity this gives the discipline to re-examine Euro-American.

Social anthropology is distinguished from subjects such as economics or political science by its holistic range and the attention it gives to the comparative diversity of societies and cultures across the world, and the capacity this gives the discipline to re-examine Euro-American assumptions. It is differentiated from sociology, both in its main methods (based on long-term participant observation and linguistic competence), and in its commitment to the relevance and illumination provided by micro studies.

This study of religion in a Rhodesian tribe is based on Dr Murphree's continuous field work in the Shona community from 1962-4. It is thus more than an examination of the impact of Christian ideas on a traditional religion. The author's thesis is that there were factors in the indigenous religious system of the Shona which allowed them to assimilate Christianity as a viable alternative form of religion, and there is therefore an emphasis on the historical factors involved in the contemporary sociological situation, which the author is also concerned to analyse.
