The publication of An African Eclipse in 1992 had introduced Chin Ce as a political writer of profound awareness of nation and continental history and, thenceforth, Ce's art was soon to carve its own stamp of identity by his eclectic and interdisciplinary fusion of perspectives which lend his works deeper and wider significance.
This book contains scholarly chapters and reviews on the novels and works of Nigerian novelist, poet and critic Chin Ce only as a mild testimony to the wider interest and criticism which recent Nigerian writing might continue to generate among scholars of African literature throughout the world.
