Since independence in 1960, Nigeria has undergone tremendous change shaped by political instability, rapid population growth, and economic turbulence.
The Historical Dictionary of Nigeria introduces Nigeria’s rich and complex history. Readers will find a wealth of information on important contemporary issues like AIDS, human rights, petroleum, and faith-based conflict. Many of the dictionary’s entries highlight Nigeria’s relationship to its West African neighbors and its membership in international organizations such as the AU, OPEC, and the UN.
In their thorough and comprehensive coverage of Nigeria, Toyin Falola and Ann Genova provide a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and over 500 cross-referenced dictionary entries on notable people, places, events, and cultural practices with an emphasis on Nigeria’s post-1990 developments.
