About the Author:

SARA S. BERRY is Professor of History and Anthropology at Johns Hopkins University and the author of several books, including Fathers Work for their Sons, winner of the 1985 Herskovits Award. Her most recent book is No Condition is Permanent: The Social Dynamics of Agrarian Change in Sub-Saharan Africa. _

Review:

... a fascinating study of Africa's legal, political and economic modernity ... a rich enquiry into the ways in which the constant re-interpretation of history is crucial to a definition of what constitutes ownership of land. And since the issues of land tenure and entitlement are at the heart of the relationship between wealth and power, in Africa as elsewhere, this discussion casts a revealing light on the relevance of tradition to modernization of the continent. It also brings to the fore the vexed subject of continued significance of customary authority, especially local chiefs, within a political framework that has no constitutionally relevant place for them. - Patrick Chabal in INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS
