Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Crippled Giant is an excellent summary of Nigerian political history.... The work is notable for even-handed analysis of both history and theory. The result is an introduction of the highest quality to the study of Nigerian politics." --African Studies Review

"Osaghae, an academic with a refreshingly neutral and understated approach to the maddening follies of his government, has produced a highly readable overview of Nigeria's politics, economy, and foreign relations. Rich in detail, his account is also a useful tour of earlier thematic treatments of the subject." --Foreign Affairs

"... well-written, coherent narrative and thoughtful, balanced analysis of Nigeria's political history from 1960 to 1996."

About the Author

Eghosa E. Osaghae taught politics at Ibadan University in Nigeria and is currently Professor and Head of Political Studies at the University of Transkei, South Africa.
