Ken Saro-Wiwa

Hurry - Only 4 left in stock!
The shocking execution of Ken Saro-Wiwa at the hands of the Nigerian government in 1995 stirred new interest in the many facets of his life - as novelist and short story writer, radio and television personality, publisher and entrepreneur, political and environmental activist. This interdisciplinary collection critically assesses Saro-Wiwa's exceptional life and work from a range of fresh perspectives. The authors examine Saro-Wiwa's literary output both in terms of literary criticism and within a political framework. They give equal attention to his more public roles, including public reaction within Nigeria to his work. A comprehensive, annotated bibliography of print and electronic resources on Saro-Wiwa is a valuable feature of the book.
