Things Fall Apart

This expanded edition of Chinua Achebe's first novel portrays the collision of African and European cultures in an Igbo village.

This expanded edition includes new illustrations, maps, additional essays on history, culture,and literature, and reference material to help readers see Achebe's classic novel in social and historical context, and to understand its place in world literature.
