Originally published in 1938, the primary object of this book was to place on record, for the information and guidance of government officials and of the Tswana themselves, the traditional and modern laws and related customs of the Tswana tribes of the Bechuanaland Protectorate. The author was invited in 1934 by the Administration of the Protectorate to undertake the compilation of such a record and the book does not pretend to give a complete account of Tswana life, but deals only with those aspects which may be regarded as falling within the province of tribal law.
