Item description for The Amalgamation and its Enemies: An Interpretive History of Modern Nigeria by Richard A. Olaniyan...

Amalgamation has become an ideal - the ideal of Nigerian nationhood. The question however, is whether this ideal is achievable. The thesis of this study is that the political history of the Nigerian state since 1914 has been a story of the struggle between the forces of hegemony, caused by the historical imbalance of the amalgamation of the Northern and Southern protectorates; and the need to promote integration. The contributors discuss how this has resulted in an unrelenting struggle between the threat of disintegration on the one hand, and advocacy of constitutional remodelling to achieve a more cohesive federation, on the other. The editor is Professor of Diplomatic History and American Studies at Obafemi Awolowo University. Other contributors are professors and lecturers at the same university.
