From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

America, Their America (1964) is a personal journal and travelogue by Nigerian writer J. P. Clark. It was written after Clark spent eight months in the United States studying at Princeton University (on a fellowship from which he was terminated). The book created controversy because of its attacks on American life-styles and values. Today the book is sometimes taught in college courses about West African literature and is cited in discussions about African perspectives on the United States.
