Editorial Reviews

Including the introduction, 22 contributions examine the program and politics of military transition to civilian rule of Gen. Ibrahim Babangida's administration (1985-1993) in Nigeria. The volume is divided into four parts detailing the design and implementation of the transition program, party politics and electoral competition during the transition, problems and dimensions of governance, and the role of civil society in transition. Some of the specific issues discussed include the military tribunals, the National Electoral Commission, ethnicity and the evolution of Nigeria's federal structure, the relationship between religion and politics, and the crisis sparked by the annulment of the 1992 election which eventually resulted in the military coup of 1993.
