What a bumpy ride!

by Abayomi Bamigboye

Nigerians born before 1975 may not really be enthusiastic about reading the narratives in my third (3rd) book, "On the BRINK" and that's understandable. They are not its target per se. The book is intended for our youths, children and the unborn between 1975 and 1999 when Nigeria was ruled by military dictators who governed without consideration for the well-being of the people and their future.While "On the BRINK's" content is not aimed at these elderly Nigerians, their testimonies can go a long way to lend credence to the recounts in the book, thereby reinforcing the authenticity and veracity of the stories therein.Citizens of Nigeria entered the fourth republic on May 29, 1999 with great expectations, believing that this change will usher in better days under the Peoples Democratic Part...

Heart of Darkness (Wisehouse Classics Edition)

by Joseph Conrad

HEART OF DARKNESS (1899) is a novella by Polish-British novelist Joseph Conrad, about a voyage up the Congo River into the Congo Free State, in the heart of Africa, by the story's narrator Marlow. Marlow tells his story to friends aboard a boat anchored on the River Thames, London, England. This setting provides the frame for Marlow's story of his obsession with the ivory trader Kurtz, which enables Conrad to create a parallel between London and Africa as places of darkness.Central to Conrad's work is the idea that there is little difference between so-called civilized people and those described as savages; Heart of Darkness raises important questions about imperialism and racism.Originally published as a three-part serial story in Blackwood's Magazine, the novella Heart of Darkness has be...

by Matt Clayton and Captivating History

Enjoy Captivating Stories of the Gods, Goddesses, Monsters, and MortalsFrom what we know of history, Egypt, along with Sumer, were the foundations of civilization. The Fertile Crescent, which stretched from the Nile Valley to the twin rivers in Mesopotamia, gave us our earliest glimpse of organized man. But organized how? For one, both locations gave us writing—hieroglyphics in Egypt and cuneiform in Sumer. There is still some debate about who was first.In this book, we will start by looking at the gods and goddesses of Kemet—Ancient Egypt. Then, we will turn our attention to the monsters which likely gave them nightmares and humbled them in their quest to bring order to the world around them.Finally, we will look at the mortals which shaped their civilization and made Egypt the bedroc...

Christianity, Islam, and Orisa-Religion: Three Traditions in Comparison and Interaction (The Anthropology of Christianity)

by J.D.Y. Peel

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s open access publishing program for monographs. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. The Yoruba of southwestern Nigeria are exceptional for the copresence among them of three religious traditions: Islam, Christianity, and the indigenous orisa religion. In this comparative study, at once historical and anthropological, Peel explores the intertwined character of the three religions and the dense imbrication of religion in all aspects of Yoruba history up to the present. For over 400 years, the Yoruba have straddled two geocultural spheres: one reaching north over the Sahara to the world of Islam, the other linking them to the Euro-American world via the Atlantic. These two external spheres we...
