Sinossi

In the 1990s a nationwide crime wave overtook Côte d’Ivoire. The Ivoirian police failed to control the situation, so a group of poor, politically marginalized, and mostly Muslim men took on the role of the people’s protectors as part of a movement they called Benkadi. These men were dozos—hunters skilled in ritual sacrifice—and they applied their hunting and occult expertise, along with the ethical principles implicit in both forms of knowledge, to the tracking and capturing of thieves. Meanwhile, as Benkadi emerged, so too did the ethnic, regional, and religious divisions that would culminate in Côte d’Ivoire’s 2002–07 rebellion. 

Hunting the Ethical State
reveals how dozos worked beyond these divisions to derive their new roles as enforcers of security from their ritual hunting ethos. Much as they used sorcery to shape-shift and outwit game, they now transformed into unofficial police, and their ritual networks became police bureaucracies. Though these Muslim and northern-descended men would later resist the state, Joseph Hellweg demonstrates how they briefly succeeded at making a place for themselves within it. Ultimately, Hellweg interprets Benkadi as a flawed but ingenious and thoroughly modern attempt by non-state actors to reform an African state.

My Son, Joseph, wrote this book. My husband and I traveleld with him for one month in Cote d'Ivoire and watched him relate to the West Africans. Joseph did research there as a Fulbright scholar before he received his Ph.D. He lived in Cote d'Ivoire for four years. He speaks the languages of that area and he definitely understands their culture. He is very much at home in West Africa.

Joseph Hellweg's nuanced study of the Benkadi Movement of Cote d'Ivoire is a must-read not only for anthropologists but also for anyone interested African politics and Islam. Beautifully written and insightful!
