Product Description

Benin Studies under the Scalpel brings together some of the leading local and international scholars in Benin and Edo studies to celebrate Dr. Ekhaguosa Aisien’s 90th birthday. Dr. Aisien has made immense and path-breaking contributions to the documentation and study of Benin history and culture in the last four decades and rightly deserves appreciation and commendation. There is no better time to appreciate and commend him for his contributions than with this collection at this landmark birthday. The collection consists of seventeen essays, some of which evaluate Aisien’s contributions to the growing field of Benin Studies. The other essays deal with various subjects ranging from topics in various disciplines, some of which touch on and relate to Aisien’s works. They include topics like gender and historiography, issues and problems in the writing of Edo language, water and health issues in Colonial Benin and Esan land, Benin Kingdom’s political, cultural and economic influence on and relations with neighbours, crowns, coronets of Benin royalty and nobility, Benin armaments and weaponry, the Ugie Oro festival, and the Kareta dance of Benin. This collection extends the frontiers of Benin studies with engaging essays on some aspects of Benin and Edo Studies that have never been previously published.
