Local Government in West Africa

By L. Gray Cowan
Columbia University Press, 1958
292 pp. $5.00

Based on two years' field work in 1954 and 1955, this is a well-handled and informative study of local representation and administration in British and French West Africa. The picture is one of complex and rapid change under the dual influence of traditional and Western practices.
