Description

‘This book is a triumph of eclecticism. In the story of a country that oscillates between high hope and terrible frustration, the author has demonstrated a rare vigour and creativity that captures in one breath our age-old folklores, sociological imagination and political behaviours – all of which have impelled historical actions. This book will enrich our understanding of the forces that have shaped the destiny of Africa’s most populous nation. Scholars and the general reader will be fascinated by the indigenous stories used here to make sense of our modernity.
