A Southern Nigerian Community: Case Study Ughelli

Paperback / softback
This book represents a social and cultural study of a mid-sized Nigerian city. It indicates the structure of the everyday, in a community where hustle and insecurity hasten a world only occasionally recognizable to its founding fathers. The book deals with the struggle for infrastructural progress, with the dynamics of religious faith in a city of one thousand fervent churches, and with the nature of lived time in a culture which has not carefully documented itself.
