In The Politics of Bones, acclaimed Canadian journalist J. Timothy Hunt tells the tragic and courageous story of Ken Saro-Wiwa through the eyes of his younger brother, Dr. Owens Wiwa. Saro-Wiwa, executed in 1995, was an internationally acclaimed author and environmental and human rights activist who organized to fight the rampant environmental destruction caused by Shell Oil in the Niger Delta. Owens Wiwa’s story is a heart-stopping saga of personal courage and official corruption, of individual selflessness and corporate greed, of a man's abiding love for his brother and extraordinary determination to honor him.
