First, i want to state that i have not yet read all the material as this is necessarily a longer process. While most material can be read through by nailing a key paragraph or two, this material demands a much more repetitive process. As important though, the informant is not disclosing a lot of science and even cultural knowledge not already known in the time and place (1947). The writer though put this all back together decades later and we get some of that creeping in.
We do get a sociological appreciation of the political culture of the Domain which can best be described as antique imperial. It is certainly something which we can appreciate in terms of our own historical experience. It is nonsense and merely mirrors our own literature provided to the informant. In short, it is disinformation. We can then expect a lot of this.
Yet there is plenty of information that is real and that we actually need to know and cannot dismiss..
