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. J.P Clark profoundly captures the social and political atmosphere in America in this critique that is powerfully woven into an excellent literary work.
