The Marakwet of Kenya

A Preliminary Study

by B.E. Kipkorir

The Marakwet of Kenya is a study of a sub-group of the greater Kalenjin community, the majority of whom live in the Rift Valley Province of Kenya. It is an excellent introduction to the study of an African community in transition, both from its belief systems and in its broad structure and organisation. This work is invaluable to any student of comparative studies; whether in sociology, anthropology, economics or history.
