'The object of this little work is twofold. In the first place I wish to show that, concurrent with fetishism or Jujuism, there is in Africa a religion giving us a much higher conception of God than is generally acknowledged ... And, in the second place, I am anxious to make clear the vital importance of the kingly office to the African communities' (preface).
