Description

An analysis of the Gowon and Muhammed/Obasanjo regimes in Nigeria. The book arose from debates in Nigeria's academic circles in the late 1970s on Nigeria's foreign policy under the two military regimes that preceded the second republic, with special emphasis on the question of whether Nigeria's foreign policy under the Muhammed/Obasanjo regime represented a continuation of or change from that of its predecessor, the Gowon regime.
