Some brief overview of this book

The sets of meanings that came to dominate were those created by young people drawn from a range of social backgrounds who in the behaviors and beliefs associated with Christian missionaries, found a refuge from insecurity and ways to transcend a particularly African context of generational relations and ideologies.

Based on over five years of research in Nambia, Finland, and Germany, McKittrick's book is a tour de force demonstration of African social history at its best. Her fluency with a number of sources in a number of languages: Afrikaans, English, Finnish, French, German, Oshiwambo, and Portuguese, her interviews with numerous Ovambo, and her rigorous sleuthing through a massive body of ethnographic materials, traveler's accounts, and missionary accounts is breathtakingly impressive. She convincingly demonstrates the many ways a microhistory that stresses the local can nonetheless significantly illuminate our understanding of historical process throughout Africa.
