Abstract:Examines the first steps in the transition to so-called modernity in the kingdom of Toro in western Uganda. Beginning with the colonial invasion in 1891, the author traces the attempts by the African elite, particularly the monarch, to accommodate the Toro state to the demands of colonial rule. The conclusion is that there was no question of modernization in terms of democratization or extension of political participation, but rather of intensification of the power of the central legal, administrative and political agencies of the society. Sections: the Lugard-Kasagama rendezvous of 1891 - the crisis of 1895-1896 - the struggle for cultural independence - the strengthening of royal administration. Notes.
