The added introduction and annotation offer a context hitherto unavailable to the scholar and general reader.

I was interested to hear that this book has been updated and reproduced. My grandfather Mr A.J. Ocansey, was one of the sponsors of the original book. I first saw a copy of the original book which belonged to the daughter of Dr Bruce who I believe was also one of the sponsors!I am very happy to get a copy of this book.It contains the sort of information which has been lost and of which the modern generation of West Africans are unaware.

It has a lot of information for people researching their family history.
