"Nostalgia for the Future is an evocative and topical study that is clearly the product of a mature, long-term engagement with contemporary Togo, the anthropological and historical literature on the country, and the theoretical debates that have been central to anthropology over the past fifteen years." - Mariane C. Ferme, University of California, Berkeley"
