Whether by accident or design, this completed manuscript was sadly lost. However, after his death, his brother, Dr Obadiah Johnson, produced this work from his notes.

It reminds us of the beauty, pain, violence and resounding relevance of Yoruba culture (easily mirrored in other African ethnicities).  This pioneering volume brought together various oral and recorded accounts of Yoruba history, describing not only political history but also social customs, language and laws.

Whether by accident or design, this completed manuscript was sadly lost. However, after his death, his brother, Dr Obadiah Johnson, produced this work from his notes. It was at last published in 1921. Unfortunately, Obadiah died in 1920 so neither he nor Samuel saw the finished product.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan\u003eThis book remains a key resource for the understanding of Yoruba history.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan\u003eAny student of political history will be forced to acknowledge the explicit and almost accurate records collected by Samuel Johnson in this book. The book has a vivid picture of a generation of Yoruba Nationhood within Nigerian Nationality, prior to the British invasion and colonalization of Nigeria, Yoruba had been a Nation with an institutionalized government and there is no better place to understand and assess this form of government except in this book, the book is a bag of history, politics and culture of a nation called The Yorubas, it is one of the best book to describe the politics of government in which history defines the terms and culture of power dictates the order.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan\u003eThis is one of my favourite books. It is illuminating and engaging and strangely funny in its quaint often sententious tone. I would recommend it as must-read text for all Yorubas and indeed all interested Nigerians, Beninois and Brazilians. It reminds us of the beauty, pain, violence and resounding relevance of Yoruba culture (easily mirrored in other African ethnicities).  This pioneering volume brought together various oral and recorded accounts of Yoruba history, describing not only political history but also social customs, language and laws. This volume remains the standard reference for the history of the Yoruba people.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan\u003eThe first part of the book discusses the people, their country and language, religion, government, land law, manners and customs. The second part is divided into four periods, dealing first with mytheological kings and deified heroes; with the growth, prosperity and oppression of the Yoruba people; the time of revolutionary wars and disruption; and, finally, the arrest of disintegration, inter-tribal wars, and the coming of the British.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan\u003eThere are two appendices, on dealing with treaties and agreements, the other giving tables of Yoruba kings, rulers, and chiefs. The book also includes an index and map of the Yoruba country.\u003c\/span\u003e"}
