The historical biography of Reuben Ibekwe Uzoma, OFR, OBE, LL.D (honouris causa), who lived from 1912 to 2000, fits into the mould of the concept of "historical biography" in terms of academic style and material covered and utilized. It is at the same time both multidisciplinary and analytical in nature. The authors have successfully brought together perspectives from History Studies with those of Sociology, Politics and even Social Anthropology, to produce a rich and insightful book.
It is a work which applies the life-and-times story of an individual, in portraying the importance of the subjective experiences of one man, in the better understanding of specific areas of past and contemporary societal events.
Safari Books are delighted to be pacesetters in providing the vehicle for the promotion of this new conception biography in Nigerian academics and its publishing world.
