Understanding Modern Nigeria: Ethnicity, Democracy and Development (Cambridge University Press, 2021) is a 690-page book, and a magisterial account of postcolonial Nigerian politics and society, centred on the key themes of ethnicity, democracy and development as fulcrum for theorising the past and the future of the country. It is an accessible and definitive textbook that is expected to shape the study of Nigeria by a new generation of scholars. Hence, this book’s public presentation is a veritable vehicle for bringing the discussion to the attention of the relevant audiences.
