An impassioned, eye-opening take on a critical African nation. Kirkus Reviews

Whatever readers, particularly Nigerians and students of International Studies, need to know about the contemporary history and politics of the African nation of Nigeria, they might learn in “Nigeria: A Failed State? Treatise on a Crippled Giant” (Mascot Books; 2018), a groundbreaking hard-hitting discourse by Robert Nwadiaru.
Nigeria, classified as a hybrid regime by the Economist Intelligence Unit, is a country abundant with both natural and human resources yet it still struggles after more than half a century after gaining independence in 1960. All of these have been squandered by years of misrule.
Well-received by book reviewers, Goodreads users, and Amazon customers, “Nigeria: A Failed State?” confronts the many issues that hinder the African giant’s development: political repression, rampant corruption, poverty, ethnic and sectarian violence, crumbling infrastructure, energy supply crisis, and economic dependence on oil and mining.
The author exposed the toxic political culture of impunity, where certain individuals in positions of power can get away with abuses, pervasive violence against dissent, corruption involving everyone from local government officials to first ladies, and the moral laxity among Nigerians. But the author also offers and analyzes possible solutions to the country’s ills, thus giving the political leaders an opportunity to exercise their leadership and lift Nigeria out of its myriad economic challenges.
So, is Nigeria a failed state? Readers will have to grab a copy of Robert Nwadiaru’s “Nigeria: A Failed State? Treatise on a Crippled Giant” and meditate on the question.
Copies are available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Await the public display of this book at the upcoming Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on April 13-14, 2019 at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, CA.
