This book examines the role of women in the oil palm economy in Igalaland from 1900 to 2000.
It covers both the colonial and forty years of the post-colonial era.
In geographical terms, Igalaland (‘Ane Igala') refers to the territory where the Igala speaking people are numerically and culturally dominant.
Indeed Igala's common political identity dates as far back as the early 17th century.
Ane Igala is bounded in the north by the River Benue; in the west by the River Niger; in the east by Idomaland and in the South by Igboland.
Ane Igalaland here refers to the area inhabited by the present Igala of Kogi State.
Igalaland is not coterminous with the former Igala kingdom, as it no longer includes some parts of Idomaland, Igboland and Egbiraland, where the Atta exercised his power.
