A new essay by Achebe in the NYT here. Its hard to avoid a sense of reading what we already know, without learning anything in the process. The deep tectonic shifts brought about by technology and demography are not mentioned, nor is the slow change in the nature of politics in Nigeria really addressed. Its not surprising when you are commenting thousands of miles away from the action.
