Edgerton, Robert B.  
The Fall of the Asante Empire. The Hundred-year War for Africa's Gold Coast.

Publisher: N.Y., Free Press [c1995].
293 p., index, illus.; 24 cm. "At its height, the Asante empire, on the Gold Coast of Africa in present-day Ghana, comprised three million people and had its own highly sophisticated social, political, and military institutions. Armed with European firearms, the tenacious and disciplined Asante army... won the respect and admiration of British commanders, and displayed a unique willingness to adapt their traditional military tactics to counter superior British technology. ...the indigenous culture stubbornly resisted Europeanization... It was only after an entire century of fighting that resistance ultimately ceased. Anthropologist Robert Edgerton tells the story of this hundred-year was from the Asante point of view, illuminating the epic story of an entire African civilization whose history has been almost completely effaced. ...The resourcefulness and pride displayed by the Asante in their long war with the British provide a much-needed corrective to our one-sided view of native African societies as weak targets for colonial oppression."
