M.S.C. Okolo offers an intensive research of the authors' differing methods and the way those emerge from the literature. She indicates the roots of Achebe's reformism and Ngugi's insistence on revolution and the way those positions take form of their paintings. Okolo argues that those authors were profoundly stricken by the political state of affairs of Africa, yet have additionally helped to create a brand new African political philosophy.
