Historical Perspectives on Economy, Politics, and Health in Nigeria

Historical Perspectives on Economy, Politics, and Health in Nigeria

$25.00

The literature on several aspects of Nigerian history has grown rapidly in recent years. Yet there is continued interest in the development of the Nigerian nation, evidenced by the contemporary challenges the nation continues to face in the areas of politics, economy, and social development. This volume surveys different aspects of Nigeria's struggle to achieve a level of growth and stability in the areas of politics, economy, and health. The contributors offer critical perspectives on the successes, failures, and opportunities in these sectors, spanning from the colonial to the post-colonial era. The chapters show that Nigeria's struggle for sustainable growth in these areas has been challenged by the structural weaknesses of the Nigerian state and the centripetal and centrifugal forces that have struggled for the soul of the Nigerian state.
