Thanks to Dr. Leakey, and to the collaborators who worked on the manuscript after his death, the Kikuyu morals have been set down – from descriptions of the daily activities of the people, digging, planting, harvesting, care of animals, trading, marriage, tribal raiding, dancing and law giving, to the customs connected with sex, linked with rites of passage, religious beliefs, magic (Ugo) and medicine. It is a picture of a successful self-regulating community, in which a strict set of rules and punishments established order and enabled the tribe to survive within its environment.
The autonomy of tribal life all over the world is now being eroded, for better or worse. But this well-rounded study, intricate in its mass of detail, yet straightforward in approach, seeks to make no assertions or comparisons with other cultures. It will thus be an important unbiased primary source for social anthropologists, ethnologists and social scientists, as well as being of great value to all those interested in Africa and its history, But most importantly to those who are struggling with medical conditions that doctors cannot cure,those who feel stipped off their culture,those who want ot know the true God by african Kikuyu principles which cut across a great tribal divide from Kikuyu to Luyha the Maasai,Kamba,Meru ,Embu, or Kisii and Kalengin
