Product Description


... an outstanding piece of scholarship, constructed with the art of a storyteller, its complex and many-layered text weaving together changing Ga values, institutions and perception within the context of the colonial city of Accra... . Scholars of early colonial Africa and the period of transition to colonial rule, as well as those interested in the processes of urbanisation and cultural innovation, will find this a worthy addition to the library, as will any historian or social scientist who likes a well crafted and erudite text. The complexities of Ga socio-polity are intimidating, but Parker does fashion his tale into a good read. I warmly recommend it. - D. Dorward in ARAS -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

I found this illuminating and well worth reading as I am now better informed about a tribal group and town that is not generally well known. Information given in clear concise English which can be easily understood.

I have referred to this very in-depth document on many occasions for my own articles. The author's precise accounts seem to have satisfied many scholars who know the actual history because they are members of the culture group.
