Democratic Transformation and Social Change in Nigeria

by Udenta O. Udenta

Democratic Transformation and Social Change in Nigeria nuances the organic connectedness of the intellectual conscience and critical social practice of an individual to the wider context of the historical, ideological, political and cultural forces implicated in the construction of the different phases of Nigeria’s postcolonial moment. The first of a 3-volume study of the structural and institutional shifts in Nigeria’s historical progression and strategic democratic trajectory from the 1970s to the end of the 20th century, it interrogates both the quantitative and qualitative transitions in the Nigerian social formation with piercing insight and intellectual honesty.
