Anthills Of/Savannah


ANTHILLS OF THE SAVANNAH is a novel about politics in the fictional West African nation of Kanga--a place very much like late 20th-century Nigeria. The military installs an officer as dictator of the country, who gradually becomes more paranoid and despotic until, eventually, he suspects even his oldest friends of disloyalty. Achebe's satiric vision vividly illuminates the tangled and often corrupt world of Third World politics.
