A History of the Kingdom of Nkore in Western Uganda to 1896
The traditional kingdom of Nkore, Western Uganda came into existence around the beginning of the sixteenth century and this book is an attempt by Samwiri R. Karugire, to trace this history on the basis of accounts handed down until the coming of the Europeans during the last decade of the nineteenth century. The study is not exclusively historical or political. Religious beliefs and practices, clan organization and other non-political aspects of Nkore society are examined in varying degrees.
