Asante Identities by T. C. McCaskie
Book DescriptionAsante Identitiesis an account of life in the Asante village of Ade beba in West Africa during a century of rapid change, told as far as possible in the words of the villagers themselves. Asante is the most intensely studied of all sub-Saharan African cultures, and this book takes Asante and African historiography to new levels of reconstruction , analysis and understanding. This is the most closely focused historical study thus far achieved of African people engaging with issues of selfhood, identity and agency in an era that saw the continent fall under European domination. Key Features: - Major contribution to African studies in its historical depth and analytic sophistication - A book of wider interest to non-Africanist historians, social scientists and others - Considers issues of broad and current concern never before studied at this level Asante Identities is a volume in the International African Library series, a major monograph series from the International African Institute which complements its quarterly periodical Africa, the premier journal in the field of African Studies.
