 About the Book 

In this comprehensive study the Ghanaian/Danish anthropologist examines a phenomenon, which has caused debate inside and outside anthropology: female circumcision. The book provides a solid ethnographic background to understanding circumcision practices in their ethnic, cultural and medical context. It shows ethnic and regional differences in the practices of circumcision and the problems related to these practices. The book also contains an informative overview of the ethnography of Ghana and will be of great use to anyone interested in social anthropology, gender studies, development studies, and West Africa.
