About this Item

Hardcover. 292 pages. Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.1in. x 1.1in.World Hunger is one mans hunger which precipitates a world hunger. The hunger for freedom in World Hunger, though individual and isolated, is universal. It is a hunger to go to The United States, understand its peoples and culture, and to eventually become one among the Free and the Proud. It is a dormant dream which is ignited by the Nigerian Military oppression and marginalization of the humanity of the Igbo tribe after the Civil War, commonly known as the Biafran War. It was a dream that nothing but the Statue of Liberty could satisfy. Once aflame, that dream became an excruciating hunger. Neither the laws of London and the British Customs officers nor the New York Immigration officers could stop the roaring flame in the author; he was bent on meeting face to face with the renowned Statue of Liberty. Reading World Hunger is like reading a Catechism of Social Questions; it places God at the center of every endeavor and every hardship, including but not limited to His readiness to follow His own creation as a guide in prison; it is a recreation of Gods eminent presence in His creation. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781463438203

About this title

Synopsis:

World Hunger is one man's hunger which precipitates a world hunger. The hunger for freedom in World Hunger, though individual and isolated, is universal. It is a hunger to go to The United States, understand its peoples and culture, and to eventually become one among the "Free and the Proud." It is a dormant dream which is ignited by the Nigerian Military oppression and marginalization of the humanity of the Igbo tribe after the Civil War, commonly known as the Biafran War. It was a dream that nothing but the Statue of Liberty could satisfy. Once aflame, that dream became an excruciating hunger. Neither the laws of London and the British Customs officers nor the New York Immigration officers could stop the roaring flame in the author; he was bent on meeting face to face with the renowned Statue of Liberty. Reading World Hunger is like reading a Catechism of Social Questions; it places God at the center of every endeavor and every hardship, including but not limited to His readiness to follow His own creation as a guide in prison; it is a recreation of God's eminent presence in His creation.

About the Author:

I was born in Umulogho Obowu, Etiti District, Okigwe division, Imo State, formally of Eastern Region of Nigeria. There was no birth certificate when I was born, but my Baptizmal card which was signed and dated by Reverend Father LaHeif on Tuesday, December 25, 1939 indicated that I was thirty-six days or a month and a week old, which put my date of birth at November 19, 1939. I grew up under strict rules of Kaka, my father, who didn't want me to go to school because he had a royal place for me in the family, but my mother was relentless in her endeavor to see me in school. When I did go, she didn't stop there; she wanted me to be a teacher whereas Kaka wanted me to be a soldier. I satisfied Kaka's hunger when the civil war broke out in Nigeria; otherwise, I have been a teacher all my life from age fifteen when I taught Kindergarteen class, so each day when I go to the classroom, I do so because it is my mother's job, and I do it with my whole heart in celebration of her vision.
