The Way We Lived
This work captures the voices of those whose activities have been neglected by historians and other scholars despite their central role in shaping the contours of change in society. Most of the essays in this volume deal with the effects of European contact: the Atlantic slave trade and its impact on Nigerian societies and the Igbo region in particular as well as the impact of European colonialism from the late nineteenth century. Nigerian and Igbo scholars will particularly benefit from this collection.
