Description:(Gaborone: The Botswana Society and The National Archives and Records Services, 1996) 9991260285. 247 x 170 mm; saddle-stitched card wrappers; pp. (iv) + 47; contemporary photographs. Very good condition. "In the past research on the Hermannsburg Mission has been largely confined to studies in German. This has contributed to a general neglect of the Mission in the English literature on Botswana. Andrea Mignon's study is thus an important and overdue contribution to the ongoing reassessment of local church history. Besides examining the early years of the Mission she has ably traced its post 1862 development among the Balete and Bahurutshe communities of south-eastern Botswana. In so doing she draws upon German archival materials recently deposited at the Botswana National Archives as part of a record repatriation project sponsored by the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs." .
