This book first addresses the theoretical reductionism that has characterized the analysis of ethnicity and presented it teleologically as a dependent variable perceptible only in the analyses of political or class confrontations. Thereafter it goes on, through an analysis of trade in pre-colonial, colonial and post-colonial Nigeria to show that the awakening of the Igbo people to their common ethnic identity is not simply a colonial creation. The book clearly shows how ethnicity can be ameliorated in Nigeria.
