Abstract:The studies presented in this collective volume were carried out at the Centre for Basic Research in Kampala, Uganda. The papers are arranged under three headings: living conditions, popular movements, and constitutionalism. The papers on living conditions deal with land policy and land tenure in Mashindi District (Nyangabyaki Bazaara), land tenure and agricultural production in Luwero District (Frank Muhereza), pastoral crisis in Karamoja (Charles Emunyu Ocan), canoe fisheries on Lake Kyoga and Lake Victoria (Charles Asowa-Okwe), and the organization and struggle of workers in United Garments Industry Ltd (Josephine Ahikire). This is followed by papers on the Nyabingi Movement (1910-1930) in Kigezi (Murindwa Rutanga), the Rwenzururu Movement which emerged in the Toro Kingdom under British colonial rule (Arthur Syahuka-Muhindo), Islamic fundamentalism and the Tabligh Youth Movement (Sallie Simba Kayunga), popular democracy and the Resistance Councils in the 1980s (Expedit Ddungu), and the press and democratic struggles in Uganda, 1900-1962 (Zie Gariyo). The concluding papers deal with judicial power and constitutionalism (Joe Oloka-Onyango) and pluralism and the right of association (Mahmood Mamdani).
