For some odd reason, many Nigerians have a rose-tinted view of colonialism. Many Nigerians view British colonialism as a golden age where things were better. This is really strange given the extreme violence and fraud that occurred under colonial rule.

This is the warts and all true account of what colonial rule was really like - not the British written "Revised Standard Version" of Nigeria's history.

Max, glad to see you post again on this forum. Nairaland has since changed since you first made your presence felt on this forum. That old intellectual guard have since fizzled out to pursue other interests. Nevertheless, I hope you continue to contribute measurably on here as this present generation sir, is one with no sense of history, history they very much need in this troubling times. I'm still reading your book #whatbritaindidtonigeria(on Page 193 presently) and this is your best book yet since your seminal work, oil politics and violence. I've been so immersed in it I swear I'm missing deadlines reading it this late into the night. I wish I had a means of promoting your book further. I will do so on my social media platforms when I finish reading what I consider to be the best book on Nigeria's formative years.
@nairalanders and Seun Osewa, buy Sioullun's What Britain did to Nigeria. There's so much to understand from it especially in these times when we talk of restructuring and secession.@Seun, please move Max's thread to front page not just for the book but for him being an old timeless priceless nairalander.
