About this book

Reviews

"This is a finely conceptualized book with the potential to redefine the debate on democratic reforms and the nature of the state in arguably the most important country in sub-Saharan Africa: Nigeria. Said Adejumobi, himself a household name in Africanist political science, has assembled a formidable team of academics and scholar-activists. This volume will make an important addition to the emerging corpus on an important period in the political history of Nigeria." - Ebenezer Obadare, Assistant Professor of Sociology, the University of Kansas"This collection is the first major study that is available on Nigeria after a period of prolonged military rule. It offers a comprehensive review of the country s uneasy quest to consolidate democratic governance at a time of far-reaching socio-economic change. Readers will find it to be an accessible reference material produced by some of the leading students of politics, economy, and society in contemporary Nigeria." - Adebayo Olukoshi, Director, UN African Institute for Economic Development and Planning
