Abstract:Of all the tribes in Nigeria, the Ibo's have often been cited as the most rapidly and thoroughly Westernized. What factors account for the 'Ibo receptivity' to 'Western Education'? According to the author two factors are particularly significant: the political events and nature of the Ibo society vis-a-vis those of the other tribes prior to and at the advent of the missionaries and the cultural dispositions (culture synonyms) of the Ibo society. Ref., notes, table.
