Questions of Identity and Inheritance: A Critical Review of Kwame Anthony Appiah's "In My Father's House" [Book Review]

Hypatia 11 (1):175 - 201 (1996)
Abstract
Judeo-Christian and Anglo-Saxon forms of marriage have injected patrilineal values and companionate expectations into the Akan matrilineal family structure. As Anthony Appiah demonstrates, these infusions have generated severe strains in the matrikin social structures and, in extreme cases, resulted in the break up of families. In this essay, I investigate the ideological politics at play in this patrilinealization of Asante society
