Oral Tradition as History
Although written by a leading historian of Africa, Vansina's work on oral traditions ranges far beyond Africa, so has a wider relevance. Vansina explains not only how oral traditions have been used in the past but also how they should be used by historians in their research. North America: University of Wisconsin Press; Kenya: EAEP

I was a bit surprised by the methodological emphasis of this book, its focus is clearly on how historians should make use of oral traditions. I was expecting more generalizations about oral traditions, how they arise and how they are transmitted. Its a well written and clearly argued book, but I don't think it offers much to people who aren't active practitioners of oral historiography.
