Great works coming from great minds. Kudos to the authors and the two mega-editors, Professors Afolabi and Falola. Thanks for relentlessly and inexhaustibly availing us with trans-Atlantic cultural literacy capable of passing the test of time. I love the Freudian slip, "Written in Yoruba and Portuguese." I think the next edition should actually be in Yoruba and Portuguese. E ku ise o! (Gran trabajo)!
