This book analyzes the history of the Ngwa-Igbo of Southeastern Nigeria in time perspective. It begins with an evaluation of the methodologies used in studying the so-called stateless societies and goes on to discuss the origin of the Ngwa and their socio-political organization. Subsequent chapters examine local and regional trade networks as well as the roles Okonko title society, the Aro and other oracular specialists played during slavery and legitimate commerce. Also discussed are the production and marketing of palm produce and the sequence of events that contributed to the Aba Women's Revolt of 1929. The final chapter uses the Ngwa example to highlight the diverse changes that occurred in Igbo mini states during the periods under review.

From the Publisher:

This history of the Ngwa-Igbo of southeastern Nigeria discusses a variety of themes such as the origins of the Ngwa, their sociopolitical organization, and the organization of local and regional trade networks. The author explores the dominant role the Okonko society and Aro oracular specialists played during the overseas trade, and uses available evidence to question some existing views on the slave trade and legitimate commerce. He also examines colonialism, the roots of the Aba Women's Revolt, and devotes a chapter to analyzing developments since Nigerian independence, ranging from the civil war to an insider's account of events in Aba province during Biafra. The concluding chapter summarizes issues raised in the book, and offers solutions to current social and economic problems facing the Ngwa and other Nigerian peoples.
