Ethnicity in Ghana: The Limits of Invention
Carola Lentz, Paul Nugent
Palgrave Macmillan, Jul 7, 2000 - History - 236 pages
These essays address the neglected theme of ethnicity in Ghanaian history, society, and politics. The essays qualify the notion that ethnicity was purely a colonial "invention" by demonstrating the ways in which the boundaries of "we-groups" have mutated from pre-colonial times onwards. The collection also considers the particular manner in which the national question is posed today in terms of language policy and conflicts over land and chieftaincy.
