KOLA IS A "FOOD-DRUG"--LIKE COFFEE, TEA, COCA, AND TOBACCO--a substance considered neither food nor medicine, but used to induce "flights of fancy." It is incorporated into rites of passage and ceremonies to cement treaties and contracts; its medicinal properties were first recognized outside Africa in the twelfth century; and it is a legal and popular stimulant among West African Muslims. "Kola Is God's Gift" brings together the legends and lore with the social, religious, medicinal, and economic importance of kola nuts. In addition, it delineates the place of kola in the political economy of Asante and the Gold Coast. In particular it looks at kola's contribution to the economic initiatives of the Hausa diaspora in West Africa.
