Nigeria And The International Capitalist System
Edited by Toyin Falola and Julius O. Ihonvbere
Lynne Rienner, 1988, 154 pp.
A group of Nigerian scholars review their country's foreign policy since independence in light of its economic ties to the West. Although their separate analyses decry Nigerian dependency and its determining effects on policy, they do not argue strenuously for alternatives; nor, as they present the choices facing the different regimes, do they show that Nigeria's leaders had any other real options besides the ones they seized.
