About the Author:

Hakeem Ibikunle Tijani is Assistant Professor of History and Social Science at the University of St. Francis. He received his Ph.D. in History from the University of South Africa. In addition to this book, he is the author of Britain, Leftist Nationalists, and the Transfer of Power in Nigeria, 1945-1965 (New York / London: Routledge, 2006).

Review:

In Nigeria's Urban History, Tijani has successfully put together one of the most comprehensive discourses on urbanization in Nigeria. A truly scholarly enterprise, with contributions by a corps of experts...this work is a critical and balanced study, and an informative excursion into the under-researched but important aspect of Nigerian studies. The compendium is a giant achievement and a compelling read. (Adebayo Oyebade, Tennessee State University)

Nigeria's Urban History: Past and Present is a considerable body of scholarship on Nigerian urbanization...[in the vein of] Akin Mabogunje's pioneering study... Hakeem Tijani must be commended for this volume that enriches the knowledge of the general reader...[and] pushes the frontiers of the specialist's understanding. (Akanmu Adebayo, professor of History, Kennesaw State University)
