Engaging Modernity: Asante in the Twenty-First Century

Kwasi Ampene, Director of the Center for World Performance Studies, recently published a new book, "Engaging Modernity: Asante in the Twenty-First Century," with Nana Kwadwo Nyantakyi III. This project captures the life, culture and traditional values in the Asante Kingdom with help from Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the 16th occupant of the golden Stool. The book captures the stool regalia in the Manhyia Palace, covering over 300 years of Asante heritage. If interested in this book, please contact Kwasi Ampene at ampene@umich.edu for more information.
