Crippled Giant: Nigeria Since Independence
by Eghosa E. Osaghae
"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."  -- A. H. M. Kirk-Greene, St. Antony's College, Oxford

Eghosa Osaghae's study leads him to the conclusion that Nigeria's problems are not of recent making but can be traced to structural impediments from colonial times.

by Kit W. Wesler (Editor), P. Allsworth-Jones (Editor)
