Description

Pamela J. Olúbùnmi Smith's Efúnsetán Aníwúrà, Ìyálóde Ibadan and Olú Æmæ (Tinuúbu), Ìyálóde Ëgbá, is an annotated English translation of Akínwùmí Ìsölá's trailblazing dramas of two powerful, nineteenth century Ìyálóde during the seventy-year protracted internecine Yorùbá wars. Besides important male historical figures, change agents included a number of very distinguished women who have been written out of history, but whose trajectory, undoubtedly, did not stop with the nineteenth century. Thus, in capturing the stories of Ìyálóde fúnsetán and Tinuúbu, Ìsölá speaks on behalf of the collective who make up the vast list of distinguished women in African history whose life stories and contributions to the economic, social, and political development of their respective societies are waiting to be told for posterity and for scholarship. More than a work of literature, Eúnsetán Aníwúrà, Ìyálóde Ìbàdàn & Olú Æmæ (Tinuúbu), Ìyálóde Ëgbá, affords the modern reader a primer of Yoruba culture.
