9781580460521: Violence in Nigeria: The Crisis of Religious Politics and Secular Ideologies

Violence in Nigeria is the most comprehensive study of religious violence and aggression in Nigeria, notably its causes, consequences, and the options for conflict resolution. After an analysis of the links between religion and politics, the book elaborates on all the major cases of violence in the 1980s and 90s, including the Maitatsine, Kano, Bauchi, Kaduna, and Katsina riots. Zones of religious tensions are identified, as well as general characteristics of violence in Nigeria; and issues in inter and intra-religious relations, relious organizations, and the states, and the main actors in the conflicts are explored in great detail. A product of extensive primary research, Violence in Nigeria makes a contribution to contemporary social and political history that no previous study has attempted, and it is written to appeal to specialists and non-specialists alike.

Review:

The examination of the relationship between religion and ethnic nationalism is significant. A product of extensive research, Violence in Nigeria makes a contribution to social and political history, contested values, and the future of nationhood. --Choice

The book is impressively multi-disciplinary, combining methodologies and theories from history, political science, religious studies, public policy and sociology...It is a welcome addition to scholarship on post-colonial politics and religions in Africa. --African Economic History

Falola...is a distinguished Nigerian historian who has indeed written a timely and a very absorbing book. --African Historical Review
