|Summary, etc.:|| The second book in Achebe's "African trilogy": A classic story of personal and moral struggle as well as turbulent social conflict. When Obi Okonkwo--grandson of Okonkwo, the main character in Things Fall Apart--returns to Nigeria from England in the 1950s, his foreign education separates him from his African roots. He's become a part of a ruling elite whose corruption he finds repugnant. Forced to choose between traditional values and the demands of a changing world, he finds himself trapped between the expectations of his family, his village, and the larger society around him. With unequaled clarity and poignancy, Chinua Achebe's No Longer at Ease remains a brilliant statement of the challenges facing Nigeria today.
