    All that World on Fire proves in the Minorities book is that governments cannot be depended upon to prevent Minorities book against people who have been, for whatever reason, demonized by others. Obioma elevates his main character to the highest level of world literature where Shakespeare's, Ibsen's, and Dotoevsky's are waiting for him. Few contemporary novels achieve the seductive panache of Obioma's heightened language, with its mixture of English, Igbo and colourful African-English phrases, and the startling clarity of the dialogue. The most positive factor affecting change and acceptance is the degree of similarity, especially of language and religion, of the dominant and minority cultures. Like children's rightswomen's rights and refugee rights, minority rights are a legal framework designed to ensure that a specific group which is in a vulnerabledisadvantaged or marginalized position in society, is able to achieve equality and is protected from persecution.

    Currently, Assyrians face persecution from Kurds, as Kurdification attempts at Assyrian cities are in progress. Redistributive mechanisms are tough to have if you have so much corruption. Bibliography: Bogue, D. The notion of chi is central to Igbo ontological beliefs, which include reincarnation.
