One remarkable feature of the essays selected for this volume is the intensity of each contributors voice to the very controversial man whose judicial murder has come to signify the extent of misrule in Nigeria. Questions of nationhood, ethnic minority and power politics in Nigeria are discussed as each contributor examines the corpus of his literary and political ideas, pointing out the direction of his thought and the enduring contribution this writer and social critics have left behind on Nigerias literary and political arenas.
