Makes a significant contribution to understanding health and population issues in one portion of Uganda. * THE HISTORIAN *
...In essence, this is a comprehensive study which makes important arguments regarding African historical demography, political ecology, colonial gender relations and political and economic change in Bunyoro. - -- Holly Hanson * JOURNAL OF AFRICAN HISTORY *
Environmental and East African historians will appreciate the challenges inherent in the reconstruction of Africa's demographic past. Doyle furthers our understanding of complexities of demographic transitions in African societies by offering a clearly written and well-researched case study of an important East African kingdom. Crisis & Decline in Bunyoro successfully illustrates how demography is influenced by politics, economics, disease, environmental conditions and, ultimately, personal choice. - -- Heather Hoag * INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF AFRICAN HISTORICAL STUDIES *
