Gulliver's Troubles : Nigeria's Foreign Policy After the Cold War by Adekeye Adebajo & Abdul Raufu Mustapha
University of KwaZulu-Natal Press, 01 October 2008
Soft cover, 428 pages
Gulliver's Troubles offers the first comprehensive assessment of the post-Cold War foreign policy of Nigeria - one of Africa's most important states. Expert contributors, comprising academics and scholar-diplomats, analyse Nigeria's most vital domestic challenges and critical regional issues from historical and contemporary perspectives. Nigeria's relations with its neighbours and other significant states and regional and international bodies also come under scrutiny. The debates here, while multifaceted, share the premise that an effective foreign policy must be built on a sound domestic base and democratic stability.
