About this title


This is a careful study of the administration and government of the West African kingdom of Asante between 1744 and 1873. Yarak analyzes the nature and development of the pre-colonial state, and traces the history and character of the Asante-Dutch relationship. Drawing on extensive research in previously neglected Dutch archives, as well as on important Asante oral sources, this book broadens our knowledge of the complexities of Afro-European relations on the pre-colonial Gold Coast, and contributes to wider historiographical debates over our understanding of African institutions.


"An important, stimulating, and provocative work of relevance not only to Asante studies but to analyses of other traditional political institutions throughout Africa as well."--American Historical Review

"Makes skillful use of the voluminous Dutch archival material as well as the more sparse but illuminating oral sources."--CHOICE

"This is an important book which widens our knowledge not only of Asante-Dutch relations at Elmina during the 18th and 19th centuries but also offers an important and original analysis of the Asante administration apparatus as it evolved to meet the demands placed on it by these expanding economic and commercial ties."--African Studies Review
