In this new collection of poetry, Tribute to Brunei and Other Poems, the verses represent the synoptic capture of particular environments and incidents, as well as author John Onu Odihi's reflection of them. Presented in a rich texture of imageries, the entries on Brunei, which form a major part of the book, portray a beautiful and peaceful country where modernity and tradition blend to form a harmonious socio-cultural environment. Odihi's depiction of the serenity of Brunei's pristine environment in an increasingly browning world and the vivacity of cultural life in the Abode of Peace can whet your appetite for a visit to the sultanate.

By extolling the virtues of hard work, unity, teamwork, sincerity, faithfulness, and commitment, Odihi's Tribute to Brunei and Other Poems presents a strong voice in the ethics that are necessary for peace and human advancement.
