God it is so good to read something so well written. After reading that awful book with such bad writing, reading Chinua Achebe was like bathing in clear water. Thank God for good writers!

The essays collected in The Education of a British-Protected Child focus on a myriad of things but have at their core the central theme of the effects of colonialism. A true and real education on the dignity and history of Africa and the colonised places of the world is yet to be discovered, yet to be disseminated. The central drive of these essays is this push, for greater awareness, greater understanding.

A great book to read and to listen to.
