Abstract

449 more relevant to the argument and to concentrate the reader's attention on Parts III and IV where the evidence presented by the author on the state-church relationship is more clearly related to the argument. Helgesson includes a systematic analysis of the emergence and development of Independent African Churches in Inhambane, and attempts also to discuss the emergence of the nationalist movement in the region, relating this to church activities and missionary attitudes. Helgesson's book, analysing the relationship between the state, the church and the people, is the first systematic study of the United Methodist Church in Mozambique, combining extensive primary research with a socio-economic analysis. As such it will provide a building block for filling an important gap in our knowledge of church history in Mozambique.
