To Dwell Secure: Generation, Christianity, and Colonialism in Ovamboland by Meredith McKittrick

The Ovambo communities of the Cuvelai floodplain in northern Namibia have embraced Christianity with enthusiasm. Christianity meant many different things to floodplain communities and struggles to incorporate Christianity paralleled and intersected with other ongoing struggles. This work by Meredith McKittrick shows how a local micro-history can illuminate the understanding of historical process throughout Africa.
