Warri City & British Colonial Rule in Western Niger Delta

edited by Peter Ekeh

This is the first book to be published by the Urhobo Historical Society, which was formed in 1999 to preserve and promote the history and culture of the Urhobo people of the Niger Delta region. The society is focusing on documentation, chronicling historical records and the writings of diverse historical experiences amongst the Urhobo, and disseminating information. A higher-minded aim of the society, which has gained recognition in intellectual and academic circles in Nigeria and the United States, is to counterbalance or challenge the imperial historiography that has characterised study of the region, and present a more truthful version of the history of the Niger Delta.
