One hundred years ago white missionaries brought Christianity to Uganda. But God had been there long before Christianity - and they called him Ruhanga. He was a powerful, all-pervasive God, but he was accessible only behind a complicated hierarchy of diviners and evil spirits: through the intercession of the ancestors - ' the living dead.'
Everyman reports from a remote region in South West Uganda and discovers that the faith of Ruhanga is infusing an imported Christianity with a vitality entirely its own.

6:The Company Comes First
WAKO TAKAYASU is a general manager with Japan's largest trading company. YOSHIRO YOSHIOKA is a section chief with the country's major computer manufacturer. Takayasu is the traditional generalist whose promotion has depended on age and experience. Yoshioka is one of a new breed of specialists, whose rise has depended more on his own expertise and the company's success. In spite of the differences in their ages, and in the kind of work they do, they share many of the same values.
