Ashanti Law and Constitution (Hardcover)

This volume, the third of Rattray’s three major studies of the Ashanti, traces the development of legal, political, and judicial institutions from their origin in the simple family group under a house-father to their present-day function in the territorial divisions under a paramount chief. Detailed data are provided for the divisions of Asumegya, Bekwai, Juaben, Kokofu, Kumawu, Mampon, and Nsuta, and relationships between the divisions and the central state are indicated. Specific legal norms, including definitions of ‘household’ as opposed to ‘tribal’ offenses, property law, trial procedure, and sanctions are discussed in the latter part of this volume.
