“There is a moral obligation, I think, not to ally oneself with power against the powerless.”

– Chinua Achebe, There Was A Country: A Personal History of Biafra.

Scholar, storyteller, and africanist Chinua Achebe grapples with notions of power, imperialism, the preservation of culture, and freedom through this book about coming of age during the Nigerian civil war (aka the Biafran War 1967–1970).
