Part of the Western African Studies series

Description

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.
