John Comaroff and Jean Comaroff, in a perceptive afterword, consider that the current mode of cultural production in Africa is one of "retroduction"-a degenerative mode that in fact makes way for new forms of cultural innovation. Together, Weiss and the Comaroffs provide a valuable theoretical framework for synthesizing the case-specific central chapters.

ABSTRACT This thesis, Christianity and African Traditional Religion in Kumasi - A Comparative Study, sought to study the differences and similarities of both religions, whether there was the existence of peaceful co-habitation and their collective influence on their host communities. This is the focus of all the rituals and traditional festivals that are celebrated. Prayer is a medium of communication with transcendent realities and to that end, it constitutes a principal medium for the articulation of the cardinal beliefs of particular religions.

The cumulative implications for Africans of the neoliberal processes (market speculation, shifts in sites of production, new modes of consumption, redefinition of the relation between states and their citizenry) cannot be reduced to single parameters. Three themes are central: the neoliberal production of personhood, the crises of youth and the moral panic in which so many of the wider reforms are registered in experience. With contributions on marriage payments, Muslim saints, popular theatre, homosexuality, ritual haunts, domestic reproduction, masculine fantasy, poetic justice, spirit possession and corruption.
