"The beauty of this book lies in the rich anthropological data gathered and the deep analytical insight that the author brings to bear on the data...The reader is well-informed through the use of local concepts and idioms...In all, the book should serve as a springboard for further studies into the commoditisation of health in traditional societies in Africa. It also offers a wide range of topics for further study and theoretical approaches to interrogate field studies."   · Anthropos

"All in all, this book provides the reader with a fascinating insight into the intermingling of medicines, morality, gender, and inter-generational relationships in a society that is changing rapidly - in spite of the opposition by some of its most powerful members."  · African Affairs

"[The author] is very good at conveying the practical realities that face Dagomba women trying to care for their families, and the differing expectations, priorities and options as Dagomba men see them...[He] gives an admirably insightful and sympathetic picture of these relationships, their common sense, their conflicts and hopes."  ·  Gilbert Lewis, Cambridge University
