The Ewe of Togo and Benin

edited by Benjamin N. Lawrance

Coordinated by the West African Organisation for Research on Eweland, this publication constitutes a first and much needed English language survey of the history and cultures of the Ewe peoples in the former French colonies, Benin and Togo. The colonial legacy has meant discontinuity in the research conducted on and by the Ewe peoples in Ghana, with the Ewe peoples in the Francophone countries, a more-or-less ethnically and linguistically homogonous people. Hence this book aims to be a step towards re-connecting knowledge and scholarship about the Ewe across the linguistic and geographical divide in the postcolonial period. Charting the history, development, politics and economies activities of the Ewe in Benin and Togo, the work brings together new sociological, cultural, historical and linguistic data, most of which is primary research, previously unpublished in any form.
