9780253009531: Land, Mobility, and Belonging in West Africa: Natives and Strangers

Focusing on an area of the savannah in northern Ghana and southwestern Burkina Faso, Land, Mobility, and Belonging in West Africa explores how rural populations have secured, contested, and negotiated access to land and how they have organized their communities despite being constantly on the move as farmers or migrant laborers. Carola Lentz seeks to understand how those who claim native status hold sway over others who are perceived to have come later. As conflicts over land, agriculture, and labor have multiplied in Africa, Lentz shows how politics and power play decisive roles in determining access to scarce resources and in changing notions of who belongs and who is a stranger.

About the Author:

Carola Lentz is Professor of Social Anthropology in the Department of Anthropology and African Studies at Johannes Gutenberg University.

Review:

"[An] impressive book... Land, Mobility, and Belonging in West Africa deserves a wide readership, as it does much to improve our understanding of how property and belonging is established and contested under spatially and organizationally fluid circumstances." ―Anthropological Quarterly



"[This] book makes a remarkable contribution to the growing literature on mobility in Africa. Its emphasis on both the social and spatial strategies of West African agriculturalists makes it a highly recommended read for scholars and policymakers dealing with migration, mobility, resource management, and land conflict resolution in West Africa." ―Journal of African History



"This book makes an important contribution to the scholarship on the transformation of African concepts of land tenure. It shows that history and memory are important resources in conflicts over property and belonging.... The book adds to the recent debates on customary tenure by exploring the precolonial history of property claims." ―Journal of West African History



"Lentz’s work is distinguished by the intensity of its focus. Not soon is anyone likely to cover her chosen topic and place more thoroughly." ―African Studies Review



"A short review cannot do justice to a magisterial historical and contemporary (through 2001) account of processes of change and continuity. Rich in narratives, readers will be grateful for the attention to comparison, nuance, and detail." ―American Anthropologist



"Important in the sense that it constitutes a detailed historical study of how complex narratives of belonging and notions of property interlock.... It is academic work of the first order." ―Christian Lund, Roskilde University



"This significant study enhances understanding of the dynamics of rural societies across the continent.... Highly recommended." ―Choice



"Careful research design and case justification, and probing of arguments with detailed empirical material, make Lentz’s arguments compelling for political scientists as well as the social and economic anthropologists and historians who make up much of the natural constituency for this impressive study." ―Journal of Modern African Studies



"[A] major contribution to the ethnography of the north of Ghana, an area seriously underserved in this regard... and to the ongoing national debate in Ghana about land ownership and the fiercely contested claims of autochthons and strangers." ―Africa



"Lentz’s work is Africanist ethnography and history at its finest and is a masterfully compiled piece of scholarship on issues of land rights, property regimes, and ethnicity in Africa. In wonderful ethnographic detail, the author presents a stimulating and historically rich treatment of ethnic group mobility and the ways in which different societies legitimate their land claims. This volume should
be considered essential reading to all scholars working on the interface between land and identity in Africa." ―Anthropos



"Illuminates the distinctive historical trajectory of land claims, authority, and belonging among the Dagara and Sisala peoples of the Black Volta region, and locates this specific case history within broader debates over transformation in access, use, and control over land in colonial and postcolonial Africa." ―Sara Berry, Johns Hopkins University
