DIALOGUE By Benedict Nnolim
Paperback: $10.06
Prints in 3-5 business days
DIALOGUE is an account of how the Nigerian military government of General Sanni Abacha was using what it claimed was its main weapon in good governance - Dialogue. The situations, described in... More > DIALOGUE, are similar, unfortunately, to those in most African countries south of the Sahara. Every effort, made by leaders of these countries, seems to be devoted to retaining and consolidating power and using such powers to seek out, create and eliminate perceived opponents and not as a means of improving the lives of their citizens or the economy of their countries. The whole business of governance seems to be about inflated egos and spending from the public purse. The scramble, then, is not to have good governance but to join the party. DIALOGUE was intended as a wake up call to Nigerians to open their eyes, observe what was happening around them and, perhaps, come to their senses.< Less
MR GOODMAN AND OTHER POEMS 2nd Edition By Benedict Nnolim
Paperback: $10.03
Prints in 3-5 business days
Growing up, in the 1960s Nigeria, was idyllic. Young Nigerians, who made the fashionable choice "to seek the golden fleece" by pursuing tertiary education in Europe, met with what they had... More > not bargained for. In their late teens and armed only with a highly romanticised but dated English grammar school education and Christian manners, they discovered that Europe was not what they had been made to believe - racism, new moralities and a harsh technological culture they could not have imagined. Most of them went back to Nigeria, which had just ended a three year civil war, after their studies and sobering experiences, in the hope and belief that they would use what they learnerd in Europe to develop the country. The country they came back to, as adults, was a very different country from the one they left, as teenagers. This book is a poetic commentary on the experiences of one person before, during and after this sojourn in Europe.< Less
