Chinua Achebe, a major postcolonial writer and one of the most prominent African novelists writing in English,is the first to be taken seriously by both African and European reader.This book critically explores Achebe's three novels-Things Fall Apart,No Longer At Ease and Arrow of God and is an attempt to examine how the writer represents the whites in his trilogy.The study explores the questin whether representing the whites is a kind of 'othering' on Achebe's part.Is it really a part of his design or can we discern any 'politics'behind such representation? The book throws light on how a 'black' writer depicted the 'whites' as Jean-Paul Sartre remarks that,now,the black men have fixed their eyes upon the white men and white men's gaze is thrown back in white men's gaze itself. It is an interesting postcolonial discourse.
