Item description for Displacement and the Politics of Violence in Nigeria (International Studies in Sociology and Social Anthropology) by Paul E. Lovejoy...
Examining the political stalemate that has engulfed Nigeria in the 1990s, this volume looks at the annulment of the 1993 elections which stopped the transition to civilian rule begun in 1987 and how this has led to rival military elites struggling for control and so increased levels of violence.
