Product Description
Igbo History and Society: The Essays of Adiele Afigbo provides stimulating and original accounts of the Igbo of Eastern Nigeria from the ancient times to the present. It incorporates all the leading issues and findings on this major group. The chapters are organized to pay attention to critical themes and issues. The voice is that of the preeminent scholar and guru among the Igbo. Professor Afigbo brings out the best in the Igbo, while concentrating on aspects of their interactions in the larger African world. “ Afigbo’s four decades of exemplary service as a teacher and educational administrator, his distinguished scholarship, board membership in academic, business and political institutions are altogether, representative of an illustrious career devoted to the understanding and advancing of Igbo interests on the national scene.” —Ralph Njoku, Igbo Expert, Pan-African Studies, University of Louisville “...these essays are contributions to African historiography based on a new consciousness, new methods, sources, orientation, institutional building and patriotic zeal. This is the essence of Afrikanistiks and a legacy to future generation of scholars.” —Ogbu Kalu, Henry Winters Luce Professor of World Christianity and Mission, McCormick Theological Seminary
