Analysing the history of the connection between warfare, ethnicity and national identity, and their basis and dynamics from the pre-colonial period, Warfare, Ethnicity and National Identity in Nigeria shows how conflicts have shaped Nigerian societies. The book also interrogates the sense in which the failures of the post-colonial African state encourage ethnic barriers, and demonstrates how and why this development results in conflicts and insurgency wars. Using the example of Nigeria, the book proposes a new way forward.
