Four Studies in Barotse Law by Max Gluckman
Professor of Social Anthropology in the University of Manchester
1-The Case of the Violent Councillor
In the very simplicity of Barotse law, Professor Gluckman argues, we can see clearly principles that are obscured by the complexity of our own law: that the ' certainty ' of law as a body of rules, for example, resides in the ' uncertainty ' of its basic concepts. In these talks Professor Gluckman traces the fundamental importance of the concept of ' the reasonable man ' through cases which he himself attended in Barotse courts in Northern Rhodesia.

Talk by J. D. Chambers , Ph.D.
Lecturer in Economic History,
University of Nottingham
' Where industry is part of the lives of the people,' says Dr. Chambers, ' where the people themselves have made it and still live by it, it has a story to tell not less interesting than the purely rural scene and one that lends itself equally to historical analysis.' The theme of this broadcast was prompted by recent talks on 'The Anatomy of the English Countryside' by W. G. Hoskins.
