Part of the Western African Studies series
This study offers a \u201csocial interpretation of environmental process\u201d for the coastal lowlands of southeastern Ghana.
The Anlo-Ewe, sometimes hailed as the quintessential sea fishermen of the West African coast, are a previously non-maritime people who developed a maritime tradition.
As a fishing community the Anlo have a strong attachment to their land.
In the twentieth century coastal erosion has brought about a collapse of the balance between nature and culture.
The Anlo have sought spiritual explanations but at the same time have responded politically by developing broader ties with Ewe-speaking peoples along the coast.
