The Resilience of Igbo Culture

A Case Study of Awka Town

by Azuka A. Dike

The major thrust of this book is the ethnography of the Awka-Igbo in particular the Northern Igbos. In delineating and analysing the socio-cultural structures, the author attempts to demonstrate their continuity from pre-colonial times to the present, thus showing the resilience of Awka-Igbo culture despite the seventy year British occupation. The core of the work is the ethnography of Awka town, which the author uses to distinguish between local northern customs and those which are pan-Igbo.
