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.
