Extractions: Now, as the face of South Africa changes yet again, we are witnessing the miracle of rebirth not only on the macro-level of a country in transformation, but also in many places which have been on the periphery in the past. Moffat Mission, with its ecumenical commitment, promises to be one such place, especially in rethinking what Christian mission means today, and in engaging in a praxis appropriate at this time in this the least of all the new nine provinces of a new South Africa. The recent inauguration of the Kalahari Desert School of Theology, however modest, and the attempt to develop a theological education appropriate for rural ministry centred here, suggests how appropriate it is that we should be gathered here to reflect on the viability of ecumenical ministerial formation in Africa today. Although ministry in urban settlements is an urgent priority, we dare not neglect the needs of rural society, indeed, the two need to be considered in tandem. Thus we gather here in this rural setting from various parts of the continent which have received the gospel from the missionaries, many of whom passed through this place en route to their particular destinations. We come to consider our respective experiences of Christian faith in relation to the ambiguous legacy which they have left in order to contribute to the global task of ecumenical theological formation in a new era. What can we share with the ecumenical church from our particular locations in Africa and out of our own African experience, and what can we, in return, learn from others who participate in this process of reflection on the viability of theological education today?

An International, Interdisciplinary Conference September 27-29, 2001 Hosted by Seminars in Christian Scholarship Session: Christian Scholarship and Technology Work of Satan or Influence of the Spirit? Indigenous Prophets on the Mission Frontier Thor Wagstrom Calvin College John Philip, a Scottish missionary who oversaw the work of the London Missionary Society on the eastern frontier of the Cape Colony in southern Africa, recognized the potential for this kind of freedom of interpretation. As he warned an American protégé in 1833, When the power of religion is first felt in its quickening influence at a missionary station, the change is so marked that the individuals thus awakened are frequently the means of communicating what they have felt to others; but in persons of this description there is so much ignorance mixed with their new light, so much of the old leaven remaining, and the fancy is so much more powerful than the judgment, that they constantly stand in need of the teachers to watch over them . Philips comment underlines the unsurprising fact that missionaries have jealously guarded their position as authoritative sources on Christian doctrine.

The Khoisan, AmaXhosa, AmaZulu, AmaNdebele, AbeSotho, A Vha Venda and other groups, as indigenous people of this country, represented a particular civilisation with distinct systems of awards which reflected the values of African society, during pre-and colonial times. 1. The Khoisan The Khoikhoi (men of men) inhabited the area along the coastal strip, from the Kunene River in the west, to the Sundays River in the east. Some of the various Khoikhoi clans included the Cochoqua, Guriqua, Chainoqua and Hessequa. The San inhabited much of Southern Africa. The Khoi and San were pastoralists and hunter gathers respectively. The Khoisan occupied defined, but sometimes overlapping territories within which they often moved considerable distances according to the availability of grazing, game and seafoods. Culturally these two groupings had much in common. Their language was closely related. They shared the skills associated with a hunting and gathering way of life. Some of their religious beliefs were similar. Their interaction with outsiders such as the white settlers and the AmaXhosa at times involved disputes over land and stock raiding. Seven years after the arrival of the Dutch settlers, the Cape witnessed the first Khoikhoi-Dutch war. In May 1659, the Khoikhoi under

Although both Ryukyu and Nansei describe the same set of islands, they differ in terms of political connotation. The word Ryukyu Ryukyu was used extensively. At this point, obviously, it was in America's best interests to play up the fact that Okinawa had not always been an integral part of Japan. The three smaller administrative areas are Kagawa Prefecture (1,883 km sq.), Osaka Metropolitan District (1,869 km sq.), and Tokyo Capital District (2,166 km sq.). The latter being the subject of a sovereignty dispute between Japan, China, and Taiwan In terms of total land area Okinawa Prefecture is only marginally smaller than the Autonomous Region of the Azores (2,333 square kilometres), but has in excess of five times the Azorean population. Okinawa Prefecture and the Azores are both small island groups geographically distant from the main body politic (Japan and Portugal, respectively), though in the case of the Azores this condition is more pronounced.

Extractions: Sally Falk Moore, " Certainties undone : fifty turbulent years of legal anthropology, 1949-1999 ", The Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute To be published also in Transnational Legal Processes edited by Michael Likosky, Butterworth What legal domains have anthropologists examined in the fifty years we are considering? How much have their topics changed ? How much do the changes in topic reflect the shifting political background of the period ? The big picture is simple enough. What was once a sub-field of anthropology largely concerned with law in non-Western society has evolved to encompass a much larger legal geography. Not only does legal anthropology now study industrial countries, but it has expanded from the local to national and transnational legal matters. Its scope includes international treaties, the legal underpinnings of transnational commerce, the field of human rights, diasporas and migrants, refugees and prisoners, and other situations not easily captured in the earlier community-grounded conception of anthropology , though the rich tradition of local studies continues along a separate and parallel track.

Well, I have news for them. Sol Plaatje was the most accomplished scholar of his generation, a giant of South African letters and public life. With his work also appearing in papers such as The Pretoria News and the Cape Argus Plaatje, amongst both black and white readers, was one of the most widely-read black journalist of his day. His novel Mhudi was the first novel written in English by a black South African. As part of his work for the Congress, Plaatje had travelled South Africa in the winter of 1913, recording first-hand the dire consequences of the Act on the lives of black South Africans. When the delegation returned home Plaatje stayed on in England for two and half years, in order to see his account of these experiences into print, and so to bring the plight of his people to the attention of the British public.

The Return of Military Rule: 1985 Location and Size Uganda is a landlocked country astride the equator, about 800 kilometers inland from the Indian Ocean (see fig. 1). It lies on the northwestern shores of Lake Victoria, extending from 1 south to 4 north latitude and 30 to 35 east longitude. Uganda is bordered by Tanzania and Rwanda to the south, Zaire to the west, Sudan to the north, and Kenya to the east. With a land surface of 241,139 square kilometers (roughly twice the size of the state of Pennsylvania), Uganda occupies most of the Lake Victoria Basin, which was formed by the geological shifts that created the Rift Valley during the Pleistocene era. The Sese Islands and other small islands in Lake Victoria also lie within Uganda's borders. Top of Page Top of Page Crops Land Use In the southern half of the country, rich soil and rainfall permit extensive agriculture, and in the drier and less fertile northern areas, pastoral economies are common. Approximately 21 percent of the land is cultivated and 45 percent is woodland and grassland, some of which has been cleared for roads, settlements, and farmland in the south. Approximately 13 percent of the land is set aside as national parks, forests, and game reserves. Swampland surrounding lakes in the southern and central regions supports abundant papyrus growth. The central region's woodlands and savanna give way to acacia and cactus growth in the north. Valuable seams of copper, cobalt, and other minerals have been revealed along geological fault lines in the southeast and southwest (see Mining , ch. 3). Volcanic foothills in the east contain phosphates and limestone.
