Review:

'The author provides important insight into the political development of one specific section of the Gold Coast and how regional participation in the Atlantic trade, and thus sustained contact with European traders and company officials, influenced this process. The author clearly shows how trade and cultural interaction influenced this political development, and provides an excellent example of the importance of interdisciplinary work to West Africa in this period. Highly recommended.' CHOICE
