Okonkwo is the greatest warrior alive, famous throughout West Africa. But when he accidentally kills a clansman, things begin to fall apart. Then Okonkwo returns from exile to find missionaries and colonial governors have arrived in the village. With his world thrown radically off-balance he can only hurtle towards tragedy. Chinua Achebe's stark novel reshaped both African and world literature. This arresting parable of a proud but powerless man witnessing the ruin of his people begins Achebe's landmark trilogy of works chronicling the fate of one African community, continued in Arrow of God and No Longer at Ease.

Chinua Achebe's novel "Arrow of God" centers on the main character's battles with colonialism and Christian influences. Ezeulu is the chief priest of multiple Nigerian villages. During the 1920s, his country experiences political and social changes when the British uses colonialism to civilize the people. The Igbo people of Nigeria are the main characters of the story as they worship Ezeulu. The novel begins with a battle that Ezeulu and Umuaro causes with the Okperi people. A British overseer, T.K. Winterbottom, intervenes and resolves the battle. With this context in mind, Achebe structures the work to highlight the relationships between the Nigerians, the British, and Christian missionaries. A significant theme of the work is the Nigerians abandoning their traditional customs for Christianity, which stirs up much resentment between the villagers. Achebe injects conflict into the work when Ezeulu refuses to be a "white man's chief." Ezeulu's beliefs affect how the rest of the characters interact. By the end of "Arrow of God," the villagers lose their faith in Ezeulu.

Indigeneity Globalization And African Literature

Literature remains one of the few disciplines that reflect the experiences, sensibility, worldview, and living realities of its people. Contemporary African literature captures the African experience in history and politics in a multiplicity of ways. Politics itself has come to intersect and impact on most, if not all, aspects of the African reality. This relationship of literature with African people’s lives and condition forms the setting of this study. Tanure Ojaide’s Indigeneity, Globalization, and African Literature: Personally Speaking belongs with a well-established tradition of personal reflections on literature by African creative writer-critics. Ojaide’s contribution brings to the table the perspective of what is now recognized as a “second generation” writer, a poet, and a concerned citizen of Nigeria’s Niger Delta area.

In the later decades of the twentieth century, Africa plunged into political chaos. States failed, governments became predators, and citizens took up arms. In When Things Fell Apart, Robert H. Bates advances an exploration of state failure in Africa. In so doing, he not only plumbs the depths of the continent's late-century tragedy, but also the logic of political order, and the foundations of the state. This book covers a wide range of territory by drawing on materials from Rwanda, Sudan, Liberia, and Congo. Written to be accessible to the general reader, it is nonetheless a must-read for scholars and policymakers concerned with conflict and state failure.
