CHOICE (Current Reviews for Academic Libraries), February 2011, vol. 48 No. 06 -This complex study by native Igbo speaker Korieh (Marquette Univ.) combines oral evidence with mastery of documentary and secondary sources to examine Igbo agricultural society from procolonial to present times. Korieh's stance is that of an African Nationalist, but the integrity of his use of historical evidence leads to conclusions in which British coonial rulers emerge smelling a bit sweeter than their nationalist inheritors ... the book's last section is pure tragedy, detailing the effects of civil war and the emergence of petroleum thereafter, which virtually destroyed the agricultural economy. Summing Up: Highly recommended.
