Description:

Growing up in Ghana, Akyeampong (history, Harvard U.) heard tales of the battle between the land and sea, which reflected the acute coastal erosion there since about 1907. He recounts the ecological and social history of the Anlo, part of the Ewe-speaking people who occupy the west African coast between the Volt and Mono Rivers.
