Originally published in 1951, this book provides an account of the traditional status and functions of the Asanti chief. The effects of British administration on the powers of the chief and his council are described, as are the tensions which the traditional political organization was subjected to by the requirements of modern administration. The author of this book was himself an Ashanti and was the first West African tobe appointed to the Colonial Adminstrative Service.
