Long Drums and Cannons

This is a fascinating study of African postcolonial writing, written by Laurence after her early years in Africa. Her comments on the early writings of well-known Nigerian authors also provide insights into her early African writings and her later Canadian works. She also explores the works of then little-known authors. This new edition of 'Long Drums and Cannons', originally published in 1968 and long out-of-print, also contains Laurence's previously unpublished essay 'Tribalism As Us Versus Them', which provides Laurence's own postscript to her book. Up-to-date biographies with a list of works for each of the writers, detailed annotations to the original text, and a glossary complete this edition. A classic of early postcolonial criticism, of interest to Laurence's wide readership and to anyone interested in African literature.
