Reisgids Nigeria - Culture Smart   Kuperard
Nigeria - Culture Smart Kuperard (Engels) € 9.95

De Cultuur Bewust!-gids geeft toeristen en zakenlieden belangrijke informatie met betrekking tot de cultuur van alledag in het land van bestemming. Anders dan in de gebruikelijke reisgidsen wordt de lezer in deze reeks bijgespijkerd op het gebied van omgangsvormen, normen en waarden, hoe zich te gedragen en wat verwacht mag worden op zakelijk en sociaal gebied. Het zijn beknopte zakformaatgidsen met interessante wetenswaardigheden over het dagelijks leven. Een must voor iedereen die naar het buitenland gaat voor vakantie, studie of werk.

Culture Smart! Nigeria is a unique introduction to life there today. Most of what is written about the country comes from the perspective of one or other tribe. There is nothing quite like this concise description of its major cultural traditions. The people most visitors will meet are well-educated, sophisticated, and well-versed in Western ways. Nonetheless, foreign businesspeople cannot hope to be successful without understanding the ancient and complex systems of behavior, values, and attitudes that underlie the country’s vibrant social and business life.

Reisverhaal Nigeria

Reisverhaal Looking for Transwonderland   Noo Saro Wiwa   Noo Saro-Wiwa
Looking for Transwonderland Noo Saro Wiwa Noo Saro-Wiwa (Engels) € 14.95

Noo Saro-Wiwa was brought up in England, but every summer she was dragged back to visit her father in Nigeria -- a country she viewed as an annoying parallel universe where she had to relinquish all her creature comforts and sense of individuality. After her father, activist Ken Saro-Wiwa, was killed there, she didn't return for several years. Recently, she decided to come to terms with the country her father given his life for.
Saro-Wiwa travels from the exuberant chaos of Lagos to the calm beauty of the eastern mountains; from the eccentricity of a Nigerian dog show to the decrepit kitsch of the Transwonderland Amusement Park. She explores Nigerian Christianity, delves into the country's history of slavery, examines the corrupting effect of oil, and ponders the huge success of Nollywood.
She finds the country as exasperating as ever, and frequently despairs at the corruption and inefficiency she encounters. But she also discovers that it si far more beautiful and varied than she had ever imagined, with its captivating thick tropical rainforest and ancient palaces and monuments. Most engagingly of all, she introduces us to the many people she meets, and gives us hilarious insights into the African character, its passion, wit and ingenuity. [meer info/bestellen]

Reisverhaal - Reisverslag Nigeriaanse toestanden   Gerbert van der Aa   Gerbert van der Aa
Reisverhaal - Reisverslag Nigeriaanse toestanden Gerbert van der Aa Gerbert van der Aa € 17.95

De auteur maakt de lezer deelgenoot van zijn hilarische en ontnuchterende avonturen. Hij laat zien dat Nigerianen geen moeite met slavernij hebben, dat de sharia uitermate populair is, dat ook veel christenen de islamitische wet steunen, dat Shell door Nigerianen wordt geïntimideerd en dat veel jonge migranten hun trip naar Europa als een soort ontdekkingsreis zien. In Nigeriaanse toestanden maakt Van der Aa met zijn verrassende verhalen duidelijk dat bijna al onze clichés over Afrika niet kloppen. [meer info/bestellen]
