Abstract:Results of a 3-month field-trip in 1962. Kasaka had been studied in 1933 by Audrey Richard for her book 'Land, labour and diet in N. Rhodesia'. The author shows in a historical setting the fissions and reformations of Kasaka village, examines critically the Richards analysis of village instability among the Bemba, sees how closely these fit the data gathered and attempts to weigh and explain the divergencies.
