With Ghana's colonial and postcolonial politics as a backdrop, this book explores the ways in which historically marginalized communities have defined and redefined themselves to protect their interests and compete with neighboring ethnic groups politically and economically.  The study uses the Konkomba and their relationship with their historically dominant neighbors to show the ways in which local communities define power, tradition, and belonging.  Through rich narrative and nuanced analysis, the author challenges popular thinking on the construction of ethnicity, the basis for social and political conflict, and the legacy of European colonial rule in Africa.
