Review from ROAPE Volume 2 Number 3
Dependence/Opportunity: Change in Ahafo (Dunn/Robertson)

Dependence and Opportunity: Political Change in Ahafo by John Dunn, A F Robertson
Vol.2 No.3 (Summer 1975), pp96-99
In some ways this piece of work is remarkable, at least for the French reader. Colonial and post-colonial political life both at the local and the regional level is presented with impressive detail and precision: this achievement reflects the sound methodological intentions of the authors, hoping simultaneously to transcend the focus of a single arena of study (the village: the state), interdisciplinary barriers (anthropology: political science) and historical pseudodichotomies (traditional: modern).
