An Outline of Asante History: Part 1 (Third Edition)
“Half a loaf is better than none”, is a wise saying’ which is true with this book because, it does not give detailed history of Asante Nation but introduces readers to the History.
The main aim of the writer is to let readers know some fundamentals of Asante History without researching into many books.
The second problem the book seeks to solve is that of language. Most of the history books on Asante Nation are written in a language above the vocabulary of most of the people who are
expected to read them. They are thus discouraged from reading the books. This book therefore is the answer to their problem. The target group is the Junior Secondary School Students.
Therefore, anybody whose standard is of the JSS level or above can read the book with ease. Information contained in the book was gathered from books mentioned in the acknowledgement and from oral sources. Notes and revision questions are attached to give further explanations to some topics. Readers are advised to read through the notes referred to in each chapter and answer the questions attached to give more meaning to the chapter. By reading this book, readers will know the contribution each of the kings of Asante made towards the building of the
nation starting from the reign of Nana Osei Tutu, the founder of the nation, to the reign of Nana Opoku Ware II. This third edition contains an additional chapter on “Kumase, the Asante Capital”.
