A look at the life and times of one of Nigeria's most powerful and respected traditional rulers, the Emir of Kano, this book transcends biography as a study of how Nigeria's powerful traditional rulers have adjusted and adapted to fundamental changes in their roles since independence in 1960. Chronicling the Emir's role in bringing about peace, unity and harmony among Nigeria's diverse ethnic groups, this book highlights the paradox of an institution that has been deprived of all constitutional powers, and yet has continued to grow in influence before the state and common man.
