An enlightening look into the Yoruba culture and religion, rooted in the history of Yorubaland (southwestern Nigeria and the adjoining parts of Benin and Togo), The Root of Wisdom will engage readers from a variety of backgrounds. As interest in this culture increases in academia, including in non-African circles, more research is being conducted into the thought, practices, and culture of the Yoruba people.
