The gifted son of a substantial Manx military officer and politician, Goldie was educated at the prestigious Royal Military Academy at Woolwich, after which he served briefly in the army before embarking on a journey of adventure to West Africa. The year was 1877, and the West African coast was sub-divided into the spheres of influence of various European trading concerns, and while some exploration of the interior had taken place, the European rush to claim the region had yet to begin in earnest. Nigeria was an unpopular destination for European settlement, thanks to its punishing climate and proliferation of tropical disease, so it saw very little direct European influence. Europeans were posted to Nigeria or sought employment purely to satisfy the needs of administration, and, of course, the various Christian missionary organizations were led largely by whites. Christian missions, incidentally, succeeded spectacularly in the spreading of Christianity across the animist south, but they made absolutely no inroads in the Muslim north. Nigeria was among the first African colonies to be groomed for independence, and upon its success as a free nation, Britain staked a great deal. The process was lengthy, bearing in mind both the intricate ethnic tapestry of the region and the relatively complex systems of government, involving a number of different permutations in the 15 years between the end of World War II and 1960, when independence was finally granted. During this period, the realization began to dawn that the original 1914 amalgamation of the northern and southern protectorates of Nigeria might have been a strategic blunder, inasmuch as an attempt had been made to forge a single territory out of two radically different and mutually antagonistic blocs. It was, of course, too late by then to try and alter the political map of Nigeria, but perhaps the creation of two territories, rather than one, would have ultimately served the region better. On October 1, 1960, the new nation of Nigeria took its place on the world stage, and it was welcomed into the United Nations and the British Commonwealth. Riding a wave of official optimism, with its deep ethnic fissures for the time being hidden, Nigeria was hailed as a signature success in British decolonization. It would soon prove to be anything but a success. Biafra: The History and Legacy of the Secessionist Republic of Biafra during the Nigerian Civil War chronicles the story of Nigeria, its civil war, and the controversial secession of Biafra. Along with pictures and a bibliography, you will learn about Biafra like never before.

Lillebror och storebror i barndomens surrealisiska land. När barnet skär sig i tummen rinner ett helt badkar med blod ur såret. När barnet ser en fluga är den så stor som en albatross. Barnets sätt att uppfatta världen är som en tavla av Salvador Dalí. En sådan tavla har Daniel Sjölin målat i sin debutroman. Handlingen i Daniel Sjölins Oron bror är ganska enkel att sammanfatta. Lillebror och storebror åker i vuxen ålder tillbaka till barndomens landskap och under resan minns lillebror, romanens berättare, en rad episoder och miljöer från när han var liten. Det som är så speciellt och suggestivt med Oron bror är Daniel Sjölins sätt att gå in i barndomen med barnets blick och teckna alla fantasier och syner med all den laddning, ångest, förvåning och nyfikenhet som barnet känner inför sin omvärld.
Det är en värld befolkad av monster och farliga odjur, vuxna där uppe i höjden som pratar i konstiga bilder; en värld av stängda dörrar och märkliga vattenfenomen som framstår som både fantastisk, surrealistisk och hotfull. Det är en värld helt utan skarv mellan fantasi och verklighet, fylld av oro. Detta är Daniel Sjölins romandebut.
