West African Challenge to Empire: Culture and History in the Volta-Bani Anticolonial War (BOK)
Sendes vanligvis innen 7-15 dager
The anti-colonial war in the Volta and Bani region of West Africa in 1915-16 was one of the largest armed oppositions to colonialism anywhere in Africa, yet it is largely unknown in the English-speaking world. This book combines cultural and sociological analysis to explore the origins of the movement, its strategy, the reasons for its initial success, and its legacy for the region after its defeat. The book contributes to the anthropology of colonialism, the military history of indigenous Africa, and to theoretical debates on structure and agency.
