Summary Book Review Ghana's Adjustment Experience by Eboe Hutchful:
Download or read book Ghana's Adjustment Experience written by Eboe Hutchful and published by Greenwood. This book was released on 2002 with total page 330 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: How did the Ghanaian state, after flirtation with structuralist theories and state intervention in the early 1960s, followed by persistent resistance to fiscal correction and a long economic slide in the 1970s and early 1980s, turn the economy around? How did it manage to implement relatively rigorous "neoliberal reforms" in the mid-1980s and early 1990s? And why, after the "economic miracle" of the 1980s, has reform increasingly run aground in recent years? As Hutchful argues, the Ghanaian adjustment strategy is deeply flawed, unsustainable and subject to recurring revisions by international financial institutions such as the World Bank or the International Monetary Fund. The Ghana case has focused many of the controversies of adjustment in Africa. As such, Hutchful's book marks a significant contribution to the literature on the role the state plays in impeding or encouraging economic and political development.

Summary Book Review Chieftaincy in Ghana by Irene K. Odotei:
Download or read book Chieftaincy in Ghana written by Irene K. Odotei and published by Sub-Saharan Pub & Traders. This book was released on 2006 with total page 724 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Chieftaincy is one of the most enduring traditional institutions in Ghana, which has displayed remarkable resilience from pre-colonial through colonial to postcolonial times. In the past, the role of a chief was to lead his people in war to defend, protect and extend their territories. The modern role is to combat poverty and other social ills: illiteracy, ignorance, environmental degradation, and the depletion of resources. Nowadays, chiefs are under pressure to achieve good governance in their traditional areas. They are challenged to integrate tradition and modernity, a process about which there is considerable debate. They carry out their duties in an increasingly globalised world where the accent is on democracy, human rights, health delivery, employment, human development and regional integration. Their ability to come to terms with these challenges will provide an indication of their relevance and the relevance of the institution to Ghana?s long-term development. This massive volume is arguably the most comprehensive and detailed scholarly study of the institution of chieftaincy to appear on the subject to date. The subjects and approaches are wide- ranging, and cover most aspects of the institution in every geographical area in Ghana. Some thirty contributors from the humanities and social sciences tell the story of chieftaincy past and present from a multitude of perspectives: anthropological, historical, economic, sociological, gender, literary, religious and philosophical.
