Reviewing Achebe’s “A Personal History of Biafra”

David Lieber reviews Chinua Achebe’s recent book “There was a Country: A Personal History of Biafra”. Along with Amandla’s Doug Miller, he explores the historical context of the war and assesses Achebe’s work in the light of his personal involvement. The history of this war and the implications for Nigeria and Africa could have taken the whole hour. A must read for students of African history.
