Summary
  • The study of the colonial impact continues to provoke scholarly research. This book is a socio-economic study which examines the social and economic consequences of the colonial economy on the people and society of the Western Delta of Nigeria. It makes a remarkable contribution to the study of colonial economy and its effects through a multi- and cross-disciplinary approach. It breaks new grounds and explores new dimensions which include a gender-based analysis of the growth of indigenous entrepreneurs and a comparative discussion of their contribution to the modernization of their communities. This distinguishes it from earlier works which overlook such crucial themes
  • In addition to its unique methodology, the extensive use of oral sources provides new insights into the question of the colonial economy
