This book on the Yoruba people and culture is humbly offered to students and teachers of African studies everywhere, and to the general reader worldwide seeking to understand Africa more  succinctly. It is offered, in particular, to the Yoruba people at home in West Africa, and the very large Yoruba and African diaspora in all parts of the world. 

While focusing on the Yoruba, this book helps to dispel, in a factual and non polemical manner, many of the misconceptions, stereotypes and exaggerated generalisations about the cultural status of all black peoples of tropical Africa, and the roots of the Black citizens of the New World.
