A former British police officer’s memoir of his assignment in Northern Rhodesia where he encountered black magic, cannibals, human trafficking, and more. Stephen R. Matthew’s first police posting near the Northern Rhodesian border with the Congo coincided dramatically with a time of horrific ethnic cleansing in the Belgian Congo area. At just twenty-one years old, Stephen was knifed, ambushed, stoned, shot, and wounded by bow and arrow. Steve’s life was saved several times by his courageous Doberman, Alex . . . This is the true, action-packed, unadulterated stories of those frantic and dangerous years, where a young police inspector confronted terrifying actions and events well beyond his complete understanding. He found that the cops were fighting on two fronts: trying to protect the vulnerable citizens of the country and at the same time endeavoring to stop the slaughter of wildlife. This unique book depicts dramatic accounts of witchcraft-murders and cannibalism. Highly dangerous solo investigations are detailed, incorporating incidents of black magic, kidnapping, arson, gun-running and people trafficking. “[A] rattling good memoir by a former British police officer writing of his colorful career while on assignment in Congo . . . . Despite his best attempts, Matthews could never shake off the way the locals saw him, as a white witch doctor with the ability to speak with the spirits of the dead and place spells against the living. There’s a story—several, in fact—about what led to this perception, which proves that, at the very least, the author learned a thing or two about telling a tale.” —The New York Times

Devil worship, black magic, and witchcraft have long captivated anthropologists as well as the general public. In this volume, Jean La Fontaine explores the intersection of expert and lay understandings of evil and the cultural forms that evil assumes. The chapters touch on public scares about devil-worship, misconceptions about human sacrifice and the use of body parts in healing practices, and mistaken accusations of children practicing witchcraft. Together, these cases demonstrate that comparison is a powerful method of cultural understanding, but warns of the dangers and mistaken conclusions that untrained ideas about other ways of life can lead to.

This study is an analysis of social anthropology and provides information on interaction and conflict in African society. Its findings are based on material obtained through personal interviews and by detailed observation of the lives of women and their husbands. The author sets out the nature, method and aims of these social and anthropological investigations. He gives details of the inequalities, conflicts, hostilities and aggression, within the gender relationship, by means of which the male community seeks to extend its influence far beyond the domestic arena. Also underlined is the role of women as mothers in the maintenance of the family unit and the acceptance of domestic responsibility. The book also analyses in-depth treatment of socio-economic change, gender values and social norms as well as Iraqw patriarchal ideology, religious thoughts and cultural values within a changing context. Consideration is also given to Iraqw rituals, marriage and domestic mores. The author shows how all these aspects can be understood through a realisation of the struggle for power existing between the heads of the households and their dependants. The reader is thus given an overall picture of the changes taking place in modern Iraqw society and the effect these changes have on male-female relationships within and without the family circle. Also discussed is the question of family and interethnic conflict management.
