Additional Book Details

Democradura: Essays On Nigerias Limited Democracy is a collection of articles penned by Professor Femi Mimiko, mni, over a 30-year period. The broad theme is Nigeria's tortuous attempts at building democracy and laying the basis for nation-building and inclusive development, undertaken over the past 57 years of the country's relative political independence. Taken together, the 164 essays in the book traverse diverse issue-areas, from education, through contestation for power by a notoriously fractious ruling elite, to Nigeria's tentative engagement with the global system. While the narrative is largely conducted within the theoretical rubric of political economy, this is done in an easy-to-comprehend manner, which makes Democradura a compelling addition to the rich corpus of literature on the Nigeria project.

This book is part of the African World Series, edited by Toyin Falola, Jacob and Frances Sanger Mossiker Chair in the Humanities, University of Texas at Austin.
