Nigeria's Fourth Republic, 1999-2021. A Militarised Democracy by Dr Michael Nwankpa published by Routledge in 2022.

This book reflects on Nigeria’s Fourth Republic, the country’s longest democratic period since it gained independence. It argues that although constitutional or political democracy has lasted for over two decades, Nigeria’s democracy remains largely militarized. This book makes a compelling argument for considering the distinct character of the Nigerian nation state’s path to militarization over the last 20 years of experimentation with democracy. Its fresh insights into the fourth republic’s path to militarization will be of interest to researchers of African politics, security and development.

Discussion: Dr Oliver Coates (University of Cambridge)
