Abstract:This study looks at how political culture in rural Botswana relates to place of residence, sex, age, education and income group. More generally the article offers a discussion of three aspects of the political system. First, the description of the information and attitudes of the sample is a comment on the performance of the system from the citizen's point of view. Secondly, if there is a connection between what is known or believed and an admittedly limited number of identifiable variables, then this is a step towards explaining the reasons for political attitudes and, implicitly, behaviour. Thirdly, the analysis of the factors associated with political culture leads, in the last section, to a brief consideration of its relationship with political change and development. Notes, table.
