Given the size and population of Nigeria in the African continent, political stability and peaceful coexistence among its diverse nationalities are imperative for development and democratic consolidation that could serve as a model for the region and Africa. This volume, put together by seasoned Nigerian scholars, addresses the strategies for “taming” the military in order to avoid future coups; solving the ethnic diversity question through national reconciliation; confronting the religious problems in the polity; de-marginalizing women in politics and society; ameliorating human rights infractions by law enforcement agency; promoting university-community partnership for the purpose of building viable communities and constructing a sustainable democracy.
