This book presents the modern political history of the kingdom of Ankole in Western Uganda, essentially the period from 1901 to 1971. Based on extensive fieldwork and analysis of original sources, the book offers a detailed exploration of the development of ethnic conflict and of erosion of kingship as a sociopolitical order and the inequalities this implied were fundamentally congruent with the premises and format of the colonial state.
