About the Book

Michael Peel, a correspondent for the financial times has told the history of Nigeria and her people. He gives an illuminating account of the plundering oil in the oil-rich delta, brilliantly examines the economics of Lagos life and militancy in the Niger Delta. Peel makes the connection between Western energy consumption and the breakdown of the Nigerian state, where the corruption of the haves is matched only by the determination and ingenuity of the have-nots.
