Abstract:Surveying a number of recent attempts to explain Ganda receptivity to change during the last hundred years, this article suggests that the supposed Ganda 'urge to excel' was as much a result of modernization as its principal cause. Modernization in Buganda has proved an extremely patchy business. Among the prior problems requiring special attention in Buganda are political ideologies articulated by particular interest groups, the economic fortune and misfortunes of political agitators, and certain unintended consequences of particular shifts in British colonial policy. Notes, summary.
