Nigeria Dancing On The Brink

2,500.00

John Campbell explores Nigeria’s postcolonial history and presents a nuanced explanation of the events and conditions that have carried this complex, dynamic and very troubled giant to the edge. Central to his analysis are the oil wealth, endemic corruption, and elite competition that have undermined Nigeria’s nascent democratic institutions and alienated an increasingly impoverished population. State failure would damage the interests of the United States, but it is not inevitable. Campbell suggests concrete policy options that would allow the United States to help Nigeria avoid state failure and promote political, social and economic development.
