Engaging and interrogating the idea of a ‘Global Africa’, this book examines how African literary and cultural productions have changed over the years due to the social and political influences brought about by increased globalisation. Tanure Ojaide takes a variety of European theoretical concepts and applies these to African literature, oral traditions, culture, sexuality, political leadership, environmentalism, and advocacy, demonstrating the universality of the African experience. Challenging African literary artists and scholars to think creatively about the future of the culture and literature, this new collection of literary and cultural criticism from scholar-writer Tanure Ojaide is an essential read for students and scholars of African literature and culture.

This book is about some taboos among the Igbo people of Southeastern Nigeria. They are not the kind of topics for normal open conversations but, rather, are the sort of things whispered between members of a family or among friends. The victims suffer in silence without recourse to the laws of the land. There is often no means of escape for them. Everyone pretends they do not exist. This makes it almost impossible to tackle the exclusion, discrimination, or abuses within the community.
