chinua was achebe quot country

"There Was a Country " by Chinua Achebe
There Was a Country is in fact a lament for Biafra and the decline of Nigeria, which he relates directly to the Biafran war. Achebe was an Igbo, from the east of Nigeria. In his telling, the Igbo aroused hostility because of their intelligence and success; they had always been a democratic, well-educated and progressive people, and they flourished in the bigger context of Nigeria; jealousy of their influence built up and led to measures that echo the persecution of Jews in Germany.
