Editorial Reviews

Review

The main strength . . . is the works' corrective to scholarship that over-emphasizes the uniformity and coherence of the colonial state at the expense of understanding how the actions of non-elite men and women shaped colonial practice and contributed to anti-colonial movements. JOURNAL OF COLONIALISM AND COLONIAL HISTORY (Hilary Jones) This original, ambitious and well-illustrated book contains much of interest and value for both the specialist and non-specialist reader. It will surely form an indispensable point of reference for future studies of French colonialism, chieftaincy politics and periurban space in Africa. JOURNAL OF AFRICAN HISTORY (Kate Skinner) Offers an intriguing Africanist contribution to the growing literature on nationalist movements in the French Empire. (A) solid and well-written study of one of the more neglected countries in West Africa. . . a welcome addition to graduate courses on nationalism and colonialism. AMERICAN HISTORICAL REVIEW (Jeremy Rich) In this well-researched and thoroughly documented work, the author offers new perspectives on anticolonialism in terms of the integration of urban centers and the surrounding rural communities, which together constitute the "periurban" zones. African and colonial scholars alike will benefit from this groundbreaking work. THE HISTORIAN (Peter Buhler) Complex and ambitious...gives scholars in the fields of African history and comparative colonial histories plenty to think about. H-GERMAN (A) well researched and clearly written study that offers new insight into the development of nationalist politics in Eweland. The periurban focus brings chieftaincy politics, religion, and urban protest together with updated accounts of the Togo Bund and print media. INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF AFRICAN HISTORICAL STUDIES (James Searing) Benjamin Lawrance has written the first detailed history in English of Togoland under French rule. Its richness represents the fruits of exhaustive archival research and fieldwork interviews. Its originality lies in its demonstration of the ways in which European rule brought Ewe communities into a new physical and imaginative proximity, setting the scene for a fascinating exploration of the struggle over markets, taxes, and rights of political expression. --Paul Nugent, professor of comparative African History and Director of the Centre of African Studies, University of Edinburgh
