Is Nigeria choking on its democratization process? Why is the country's political life colored by endless corruption scandals? Author Victor E. Dike discusses these questions and more in the second edition of Democracy and Political Life in Nigeria.

Thoroughly grounded in Nigerian history and based on extensive research, this edition is considerably expanded and updated with comprehensive analysis of the major sociopolitical and economic problems confronting Nigeria. Armed with lessons from stable democracies, Dike explains practical ways to reduce social tension and to build necessary institutional structures for growing the economy and sustaining a political democracy anchored on true federalism.

Simple in style, direct, and unpretentious, Democracy and Political Life in Nigeria illustrates how bad leadership and corruption have combined to create social instability, a weak economy, high unemployment, poverty, and a rising crime rate in Nigerian society. The country's socioeconomic and political problems have a long history, and any attempt to adopt superficial and ad hoc measures to tackle them will only exacerbate the situation. Nigeria needs permanent and effective institutional structures to tackle its problems. Democracy and Political Life in Nigeria offers a solution.
