“Great Benin: The Alcazar of Post-Colonial Culture”

"Great Benin: The Alcazar of Post-Colonial Culture”

Authored by Nekpen Obasogie, a Canada-based Indigene of Benin kingdom, the book critically examines the relationship between the Europeans and the Benin kingdom in West Africa from 1400 AD to its invasion by Britain in 1897.

Obasogie journeys through critical events between Europeans, such as the Portuguese, the Dutch, French, and the British Colonists for the period of 400 years with the Benin kingdom and some other West African nations.  Events which transpired in the past help understand the present and define the future, the writer asserts. In her book, she also highlights her experience growing up in a post-colonial society of the Benin kingdom in the 1980s.

"Great Benin: The Alcazar of Post-Colonial Culture”

The book explores themes such as Imperialism, Patriarchy ideology, Colonial violence in the 19th century, The intergenerational effects of colonization on the Benin Kingdom.
