About this Item

Title

  • La région du Tchad et du Oudaï; études ethnographiques, dialecte Toubou.

Summary

  • Henri Carbou was a French colonial official and ethnographer who undertook pioneering studies of the peoples of Chad and Sudan and their languages. The groups discussed in this two-volume work include the Kanembou, the Toubou, the Ouaddai, the Arabs, and many others. Carbou's sources included his own observations, works by Arab writers, and earlier works by Europeans, including the two great German explorers of central Africa, Heinrich Barth (1821-65) and Gustav Nachtigal (1834-85). Carbou's works still are used by scholars interested in the dialects of Chad and Sudan. World Digital Library.
