This collection, which arises out of a conference at the Centre for African Studies, Edinburgh University in May 1995, addresses the neglected theme of ethnicity in Ghanaian history, society and politics. The papers qualify the notion that ethnicity was purely a colonial 'invention' by demonstrating the ways in which the boundaries of 'we-groups' have mutated from pre-colonial times onwards. The collection also considers the particular manner in which the national question is posed today in terms of language policy and conflicts over land and chieftaincy.
