The Recovery of the West African Past: African Pastors and African History in the Nineteenth Century: C.C. Reindorf & Samuel Johnson

Papers from an international seminar held in Basel, Switzerland, October 1995 to celebrate the centenary of the publication of C. C. Reindorf’s History of the Gold Coast and Asante.

The authors of this collection not only assess Reindorf and Johnson as historians. They also reflect on the forgotten quality of the dialogue achieved in the second half of the nineteenth century by people like Reindorf and Johnson with the practitioners of local and regional tradition.

Paul Jenkins is Archivist of the Basel Mission and Lecturer in African History at the University of Basel and was from 1963 zo 1972 on the staff of the University of Ghana.
