Studies in Media and Ideological Representation of Herders/Farmers Conflict in Nigeria

edited by Gbenga Ibileye

This book features articles from a spectrum of perspectives that are considered of direct consequence for the discourse on the conflict between herders and farmers in Nigeria. These perspectives include those from the broad ambit of social sciences and, specifically, views from history and political science in order to provide a broad historical ground for the understanding of the century-old fissures between ethnic nationalities, which have burgeoned into contemporary conflicts and violence.
