An account of the Nigerian military coups of 1966 in which the author discusses both the events themselves and their sociological background.

'This is a major work which makes use of much sociological theory and many conflict models to help explain concrete events. The book is certainly essential reading for all who would attempt to understand or analyse the period of military rule in Nigeria.' The American Academy of Political and Social Science '... this is a book of real value, not least in the way it has assembled and recovered information which will remain a primary source for a critical watershed in the history of tropical Africa's most important state.' Canadian Journal of History
