This chapter reconstructs in detail the shifting meaning of the notion of 'land' in Gold Coast public discourses (academic, public and newspaper writing) in the context of the struggles against colonial land laws in the 1890s and early 1900s. It traces how, gradually, a notion of 'Fatherland' (or 'Nation') emerged during this process which later formed the basis of 20th century nationalist thought. Methods used are discourse analyses and quantitative analyses on conceopts used in newspaper entries.
