Since the Biafran war (1967-1970), no book has ever been published in French on Igboland of Nigeria. The present book reveals an Anglophone territory in close contact with France, a region which has been sending missionaries to the five continents, and a rich culture with a vibrant oral literature, its folktales and proverbs, attached to communal values and tradition. Igboland is also the birthplace of Nollywood, this new African cinema which has inspired the whole of the African continent.

Depuis la fin de la guerre du Biafra qui a déchiré le pays entre 1967 et 1970, aucun ouvrage n'a paru en français sur le pays igbo. Ce livre présente une région anglophone marquée par un contact privilégié avec la France, une terre de mission qui depuis un siècle essaime dans le monde entier, une riche culture, ses contes et ses proverbes, ses valeurs communautaires et son attachement à la tradition, mais aussi le berceau de Nollywood, ce nouveau cinéma qui sert aujourd'hui de modèle à toute l'Afrique.
