Weapons of Mass Instruction

Selected Speeches & Essays on Politics, Art & Leadership

by Iyorwuese Hagher

These speeches and published essays, dating from 1983 to 2003, are products of the author’s investment n the transformational powers of education, political power and art during rapidly changing times in Nigeria. As a totality, his writings reveal the urban, critical mind of the post-modern and global African intellectual, integrated with traditional African wisdom. Some topics addressed in the papers are: language, expressions and culture in the 21st century; the role of the humanities; the role of literature and culture in the promotion of human development; the position of the writer in the discourse on sustainable democracy; African and national ideologies; and the theatre as a mode of instruction in the Nigerian environment.
