about

By the renowned author of Things Fall Apart, this novel foreshadows the Nigerian coups of 1966 and shows the color and vivacity as well as the violence and corruption of a society making its own way between the two worlds.

In the landscape of Western Africa, two political traditions collide: the old bush politians against the new intelellectual generation, and a mentor and his protegee must wage the war. Achebe details one society's struggle with the inner turmoil created in the wake of the new-found freedom from the colonial order. This is a story about national identity and political unity.
