"Dr Kalu Ogbaa's Understanding THINGS FALL APART is the best school edition so far of Chinua Achebe's classic novel. His vast documentation of its background through judiciously selected texts from African history, anthropology, religion, and literary history, has put the work in the center of African literary and humanistic concerns. His book is a boon to students and teachers of African literature, African history, multicultural studies, comparative religion, and comparative politics."-Emmanuel Oviechina Williams Professor of the Humanities Ferrum College, Virginia
