Schapera (I.) Select Bibliography of South African Native Life and Problems, Ethnology 683 (page 106), 'Deservedly ranked as one of the greatest monographs on the ethnography of Africa. Under the headings 'life of the individual; family and village life; national life; agricultural and industrial life; literary and artistic life; religious life and superstitions,' it gives well nigh exhaustive account of Tonga culture, distinguished especially by its many concrete illustrations of individual variation and of the changes due to the impact of Western civilization. The book is not altogether beyond criticism, and the section on political life is by no means as full as could have been wished, but as a whole it is a magnificent piece of work’.
