Essays in Honour of Professor Robert Addo-Fening

edited by Kwabena O. Akurang-Parry, Fritz Biveridge

"The illuminating essays in this volume which highlight the complex and multifaceted nature of the Ghanaian past and present are a fitting and splendid homage to Professor Robert Addo-Fening, one the doyens of Ghanaian and African history, culture and heritage."

ISMAIL RASHID, Professor of History and Former Director of African Studies, Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, New York

"The diverse contributions in this impressive volume reflect Professor Robert Addo-Fening's energy and multiple interests. At home in the world of history, archaeology, sociology, religions, and heritage studies, this publication of honour reflects those ranges in the formidability of his scholarship and the fidelity to African organic institutions."

TOYIN FALOLA, Professor of History, University Distinguished Teaching Professor, Jacob and Frances Sanger Mossier Chair in the Humanities, University of Texas, Austin

This book is an embroidered history, culture, and heritage of Ghana covering the precolonial epoch, colonial period, and post-colonial era with a sheer breadth of inquiry in honour of an evergreen Ghanaian historian, Professor Robert Addo-Fening, who was instrumental in training a generation of Ghanaian historians.
