Description:
New York: Holt, Rinehart & Winston, 1970. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. A classic social history of precolonial Madagascar, focusing on the dynastic tribal kingdoms. The publisher's dust jacket has it that "Professor Kent began his detailed research into the precolonial history of Madagascar with the purpose of providing a more balanced historical account than previous accounts had presented. In particular he felt that the amount of investigation into the early kingdoms of Madagascar was insufficient in light of their historical importance. Limiting his endeavor to the period 1500 - 1700, he sought to answer several questions: how, precisely, were the early kingdoms formed; how did they grow; how did they change; why did they change? Product of impressive scholarship, this volume is an important contribution to the study of the Malagasy past as well as a work of considerable interest to students of history and the social sciences engaged in area studies."

The prominent early role of the women's colleges and smaller universities is just one of the areas investigated in this volume on the genesis and early development of art history in the United States.
