Críticas:

A very interesting and important case study on the Dagbon chiefdom in northern Ghana. MacGaffey offers a nuanced analysis of the intricate relationship between secular and ritual/religious sources of chiefly power and how these have changed over time.--Carola Lentz, Mainz University MacGaffey is deservedly one of the most celebrated anthropologists alive today, not only for his significant ethnography in west central Africa but also for his contributions to our understandings of belief systems and therapeutic strategies. Here he has produced a magical book which enables the reader to understand the dynamism of 'tradition' and 'traditional authority.' A mature work written by an admirable scholar at the peak of a long career.--Richard Rathbone, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London A very interesting and important case study on the Dagbon chiefdom in northern Ghana.
