Other Information:
E. E. Evans-Pritchard alludes to, but rarely talks at length about socio-cultural change as a result of contemporary colonialism. New settlements, it seems, were established away from areas where trypanosomes causing sleeping sickness were believed to be prevalent, such as rivers and swamp areas. In his major works on the Azande, several comments allude to his intellectual attitude toward colonialism: 'The British controlled the country from 1905 but there cannot be said to have been any very effective administration till a few years before I first visited it [1926], though there had, of course, been some social and cultural changes, especially in political affairs. I am not concerned here with those changes, which were mostly imposed on the Azande and are-when I use the present tense the reference is to 1926-30-not regarded by them as part of their way of life but something to be passively accepted or to be circumvented or ignored. To give one example: though the Administration compelled them to maintain wide roads, it was noticeable that when a group of Azande walked down them they did so in single file as they were accustomed to do along their bush paths. The Azande (OUP 1971, page 69). In Pagan Tribes of the Nilotic Sudan (London, Routledge 1932, page 500) C.G. Seligman writes that 'today the natives have.. on account of sleeping sickness been concentrated into settlements along the Governmnet roads, and the restrictions on their former mode of life which this change involves is already having economic consequences.' A much fuller account of the effects of colonial administration on the Azande is found in Conrad Reising's The Zande Scheme (Northwestern University Press, 1966) [Chris Morton 14/10/2003]
