In A History of the Yoruba People, S. Adebanji Akintoye deploys four decades of historiography research with current interpretation and analyses to present the most complete and authoritative volume on the Yorubas to date. The author traces the origins of the Yoruba from the mythical legendary beginnings, development of early Yoruba society, the revolution and primacy of Ife from the tenth to fifteen centuries, the founding of Yoruba kingdoms and the power of frontiers, and the rise and fall of Oyo empire, through agencies of change in the nineteenth century and the rise of various kingdoms, and the emergence of transcontinental diaspora communities down to the political twentieth century colonial and post-colonial histories and the socio economic and political transformations of the present day.
This exceptionally lucid account gathers and imparts a wealth of research and discourses on Yoruba studies for a wider group of readership than ever before. A must read for all.
