Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0865439788, Paperback)

This book is the first attempt at a scholarly historicisation of the African crisis of development. It interrogates the problem of national integration within the context of ethno-religious and cultural pluralism. Drawing on the experiences of other organic "federal societies" across the globe, it explores similarities and differences in the tortuous trajectory of nation-building and delivers exciting prospects for the resolution of the National Question. Here top scholars offer refreshing insight into the prospects for transforming Africa into the a super-power of the third millennium. The breadth and depth of coverage and analytical rigor unites the essays and produce one of the most comprehensive and authoritative treatment of the subject in recent years.

Compelling and indispensable, this work will be of interest to all scholars, teachers, and journalists in search of authentic and empirical materials on Africa and to a wide range of policymakers affecting foreign policy toward Africa.

Contributors to the volume include Wole Soyinka, Aaron T. Gana, Mahmood Mamdani, Leo Dare, Tade O. Okediji, Adebayo O. Olukoshi, Jibrin Ibrahim, W. O. Alli, Ekang A. Anam-Ndu, Bade Onimode, Eghosa E. Osaghae, Awad Al-Sid Al-Karsani, Tiruchelvam Neelan, Asnake Kefale, and R. B. Jain.
