• The Akans of Ghana: Their Customs, History and Institutions

    Supremacist historians have tended to give slanting presentations to African history as mere accounts of conflicts and wars between tribes.

    The author, deploring the situation – and agreeing with the African proverb that “until lions have their own historians, tales of hunting will always glorify the hunter” – embarked on the work of the role of the African Historian.

    In this book he provides basic background information about Ghana in the first chapters and utilizes the remaining to:

    1. Identify the Akans among Ghanaians

    2. Discuss Akan Kingdoms, past and present and

    3. Treat the Akan cultures (their way of life) from procreation, through marriage to death as well as their religion.

    The book is targeted at:

    i. Akans who wish to be reminded about their heritage so that they do not lose their 1dentity in the fast moving world.

    ii. Non-Akans (including foreigners) who seek to learn about the Akans.
