From the Back Cover:

"Achebe has written a story that sidesteps both ideologies of the African experience and political agendas, in order to lead us to a deeply human universal wisdom." -- Washington Post Book World.

"[Anthills Of The Savannah] has wonderful satiric moments and resounds with big African laughter." -- The New York Review Of Books.

"Achebe moves effortlessly... creating a flurry of perspectives from which his story's dramatic and disturbing events are scrutinized. Anthills Of The Savannah... will prove hard to forget. It's a vision of social change that strikes us with the force of prophecy" -- USA Today.
